I am sure I must be missing something simple here, but I can't seem to user an datareader with reporting. Here is a code sample:

Private Sub RptRadIdleTime_NeedDataSource(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.NeedDataSource
        rptHeaderBox.Value = "Report Criteria:" & vbCrLf & "Date Range: " & StartDate.ToShortDateString & " to " & EndDate.ToShortDateString & vbCrLf & _
        "Employee: " & EmployeeName & vbCrLf
        Dim cn As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ConnectionString").ConnectionString)
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("ReportIdleTime")
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        cmd.Connection = cn
        cmd.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("EmployeeID", EmployeeID))
        Dim p1 As New SqlParameter("Start", SqlDbType.DateTime)
        p1.Value = CDate(StartDate)
        Dim p2 As New SqlParameter("End", SqlDbType.DateTime)
        p2.Value = CDate(EndDate)
        Me.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader
    End Sub

This yields the following error:

An error has occurred while processing TextBox 'TextBox6': Invalid attempt to read when no data is present.

(And the same error on every other field.)

The same method of connecting works fine with linq-to-sql.

Thanks for any help,

We have reproduced the exception and will take the necessary steps to fix the problem. Meanwhile our suggestion is to use SqlDataSource component instead of a SqlCommand or an ObjectDataSource component with a business object which wraps the reader as shown in the help article.
