Report Data Window Disappears

Ever lost your Report Data window that shows Datasets in Reporting Services 2008?

I just did and there wasn’t a menu item on the View menu in VS 2008 to bring it up.  There is a KB article that fixes a bug with this, but I wanted to add there is a keyboard shortcut you may not know.

Ctrl-Alt-D brings it up.

Keyboard shortcuts are always good.

    You are the man. I was starting to think I was useless at using VS. :P.

    Can you provide the KB article? I’m using ReSharper and that key combination brings up my To-Do Explorer. I still can’t get the Report Data to come up.

    Sweet!!!! I was banning my head on the desk looking for this.
    I was so confused trying to find Parameters in the standard Server Explorer.

    It works.

    Actually by clicking or activating the report design pane, “Report Data” will show in View. Otherwise if you had the focus on Solution Explorer pane and click View, it would not show up.
