Frankly speaking,I used to be confused about that point you said.Telerik is only allowed to have one report datasource,if you have used Crystalreports and FastReports,in contrast,you will find this is definitely a big weakness of Telerik Report.In other report tools,we are able to add unlimited report datasource,which is very convenient for us report designer. I also experinced what you said,when I have a table(it alreday has a datasource),then if i add a report datasource ,the report will be messy.
for this problem,I usually use two ways.
1.use parameter,just as I told you before.
2.in other section,i also use a table,then i can add table datasource.
But these two ways are not very good,in some cases,they are inapplicable.(hope the support team could give us some good advice.)
You are luckier than me.In China,we can't find much reference of Telerik except on the offical site.very few people use it here.But our headquater (in Germany) prefer to Telerik.And we can't use google,it exited from chinese market last year.
So every time I meet a problem i have to try to figure out by myself or ask the support team for help.
Actually,I am also a rookie ,I'm still evaluating Telerik,I have just used it for about one month and a half.
