Hi all, I am new to Telerik reporting and have a few questions, English is not my first language so please excuse any language mistakes.

I went through some of the demo code, but I need to do more creation at runtime.

My example:

I have a web form with four textboxes/combo boxes. User enters the data, example is First Name of Mike, last name of Smith then some combo box selections. I pass the selected values to a query and generate a datatable. I do not wish to have the values on the report parameter section.

What I now need to do is display a report, and for all the results found from the query show it on the report. Example:
1. Product x on 1/1/2009
2. Product x on 1/2/2009
3. Product y on 1/2/2009
4. Product x on 1/3/2009

So it will loop through datatable and show all results. i have created a simple sample report with 1 textbox on it with a value of =Fields.Product_Name. I reference the report class in my web project and try to call it:
Dim report As New Reports.Product
        report.DataSource = dtOracle
        ReportViewer1.Report = report

The reportviewer does not show anything on screen, multiple data rows are returned successfully into datatable. Does there need to be code in report itself to loop through datatable and display on screen?

Could someone please show me an example, I did not see what I am looking for in samples here. Example of a user entering data into webform, passing it to a report and displaying results. The creation of report needs to be at runtime.

Thanks for your assistance.
