Starting in 2019, the Reporting control is no longer included in Essential Studio. If you're experiencing issues with the Syncfusion Reporting Platform, Report Viewer, Report Designer, or Report Writer, we recommend migrating to Bold Reports, our dedicated reporting platform.

Bold Reports offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features for all your reporting needs, and we will help you make a smooth transition from the discontinued control. Our support team at https://support.boldreports.com/ is here to assist you with any questions or difficulties you may encounter during the migration process.

Hi Abigail,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

You can modify/edit the report dataset or other section of report by accessing the report definition. You have to serialize the report and modify the desired property of the report definition, modified report definition need to be saved in to stream or file, before loading the report to ReportWriter/ReportViewer.

We have prepared a sample to modify the  ReportDefinition dynamically and It can be downloaded from the following location.


Please let us know if you have any questions.
