Preview a report

Note: If you are previewing a report bound to CSV data source, you need to keep the CSV data file at the same place as the report and edit the path to the data file in the connection string as, for example:

Path=MyOrders.csv;Locale=en-US;TextQualifier=";ColumnsSeparator=,;RowsSeparator=\r\n;HasHeaders=True
