    I'm stuck.

    Here are my steps:

    1 Open Report Designer

    2. New Report; Pick tabular

    3. Choose a datasource > Add New Data Source... Pick Open Access Data Source... OK

    4. Choose data connection> (I add a new sql connection and test that I can connect)

    5. I save the connection

    6. Choose an Object Connection.

    The context is empty

    The message says ' make sure your current project is built for the types to show up in the list'.

    How do I "build the project" from Report Designer, or from within the wizard?

    Hello Tom,

    Please check the attached video which illustrates a creation of data model via Telerik Data Access and using this model in the Standalone Report Designer.
    Details how to extend the Standalone Designer are available in Extending Report Designer and the resources linked at the bottom of the article.
    Details how to configure the OpenAccessDatasource component are available in OpenAccessDataSource Wizard.

    If the model is built (rebuilt) successfully and projects' target platforms are compatible, the types in the model must be displayed on configuring the OpenAccessDataSource component.
