How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

Can't authenticate SharePoint OOTB web services from Visual Studio 2008.

Hi, If I try to add a SP OOTB service reference (for instance the list service) into a Console application from VS 2008, I can't read data. It raises following exception

"The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,NTLM'.

My SharePoint server is allowed for windows integretated auth, and anonymous access is disabled (this is the default settings  I believe). Spent few hours googling and found a similar problem into the following blog post.


In this blog the author is suggesting to use the following block into the config

SharePoint 2007 Sequential Workflow in Visual Studio



I've got a problem of creating Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow via Visual Studio 2008.

I have a Visual Studio 2008 on my machine which is not the server machine (Window XP) and a server which has SharePoint Server. I had been assigned task to work on Sharepoint Workflow. So, I have decided to create a project on my Visual Studio 2008, Sharepoint 2007 Sequential Workflow. But, I got the problem down here which blocked me. 

"32-bit version of SharePoint Server is not installed. Please install a 32-bit version of SharePoint Server"

and following error in other system:

"Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies"

- I am also not allowed to install Visual Studio 2008 on the server.

- I could not install Sharepoint Service 3.0 or SharePoint Server on my machine.

I hope you some body could help me with this matter.
