    I know this question has been asked before, but I have not found a conclusive answer.

    My scenario is as follows:

    I am building a daily report which contains data from a number of different sources. I wrap it all up in to 1 Dataset, which contains multiple tables. These tables are not related in anyway, so it's not a hierarchical scenario.

    So is it possible for me to assign this dataset to the report, and have the 1 report use fields from each of these tables? Or would I be right in assuming that I can only use 1 datatable per report?

    Thanks, Tas

    Hi Tas,

    You can use only one datatable per report. If you need to show data from more than one, you can use the table/crosstab/list report items or a subreport item that of course holds a second report bound to a different datatable.

    Do you have an example of this? I have more or less the same scenario. I have multiples datatables (many, depending on the user click selection) and a I need to create N tables in a Telerik Report.

    Hi Victor,

    Please check the details posted in the Getting Duplicte Pie Charts from a single DataSource forum thread (check the second part regarding data binding).

    I hope the above information is helpful.
