Default Crystal Reports - does it even work?!?!

I'm trying to create a report, based off of a DataSet in my C# app. The DataSet works fine - I've designed a fairly extensive program that interfaces with an Access file, and can query, input, and modify records in it.

The problem is, is this whole Crystal Reports thing - I try to add a basic one using the wizard. In my "Project Data", I point it to my DataSet in the "ADO.NET DataSets" option. It then even asks me which fields I want, and I select them, which lets me know that it's at least seeing the DataSet. I set the report styles and everything, and it appears to have worked - until I start the program. All that appears in the Report Viewer are the names of the fields that I selected, without any data.

Am I missing a step? Why isn't this working?!?

Well Don't know much about that... Why don't you create your rpt defining is Database as the Dataset xsd... This way you have all DataSet fields available in the report... in the reportviewer probably you need to set Dataet as DataSource
