I want to add a new report, based on an existing template, to an NPrinting project--but I am unable to set a connection, as shown in the attachment. I have found a number of postings with a similar problem, and in each the connection became populated after creating a template. In my case, I have an existing template, which works correctly with an existing report in the same project, but the connection does not work after assigning it to a new report. How can I get the connection to associate with a new report?
Sorry, I spoke too soon. The connection name now populates correctly in the 'Connection' box, but the preview doesn't work--it just shows the template as it would appear if opened directly in Excel. I've set up the new report identically to an existing report which works correctly (except for the report name), but the new report doesn't work when previewed.
The properties for the existing report look the same as in the new one--'Connection' and all--and in Preview, the existing report populates with data. When the new report (which uses the same template) is previewed, only the tag with the table name appears. The connection works well enough that I can assign variables from the source QVW as parts of the output filename; it just doesn't populate in Preview.
