    in my project I have a function to export data to an excel file.

    I have a filestream object to do this.

    In the same project I have created a report with a table in it.

    And now I want to set the datasource so that the same data will be shown in the report.

    But how can I get this data ?

    Best regards



    public void ExcelExport(string fileName)
               FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write);

    Hi Simon,

    If you wish to bind the report to the data directly with code the supported data types are arrays, collections, DataSet, DataTable, DataView, and DbDataAdapter. 

    In general, our recommendation is to use DataSource components and to specify declaratively how the data needs to be retrieved. For example, you can convert the Excel file to CSV format and use CsvDataSource component to fetch the data from that file. 

    For additional reference, please check help articles under Connecting to Data section from our online documentation.
