Open original thread
i have this code that reflects datagrid values in crystal reports by using datasets. i commit error "The Report Has no Tables" thx in advance

Dim report As New CrystalReport1
       Dim ds As New DataSet

       'Take the data and structure from the datagridview and return it as a dataset.  You can use
       '"Imports System.Data" declaration at the top of your project/class and remove the
       'from the various parts of this function.
           'Add a new table to the dataset
           'Add the columns
           Dim col As DataColumn
           'For each colum in the datagridveiw add a new column to your table
           For Each dgvCol As DataGridViewColumn In ProductsDataGridView.Columns
               col = New DataColumn(dgvCol.Name)
           'Add the rows from the datagridview
           Dim row As DataRow
           Dim colcount As Integer = ProductsDataGridView.Columns.Count - 1
           For i As Integer = 0 To ProductsDataGridView.Rows.Count - 1
               row = ds.Tables("Main").Rows.Add
               For Each column As DataGridViewColumn In ProductsDataGridView.Columns
                   row.Item(column.Index) = ProductsDataGridView.Rows.Item(i).Cells(column.Index).Value

       Catch ex As Exception
           'Catch any potential errors and display them to the user
           MessageBox.Show("Error Converting from DataGridView" & ex.InnerException.ToString, _
           "Error Converting from DataGridView", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
       End Try
       CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = report
       Form2.DataGridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
       ds = Nothing
