View Report Data window in Visual Studio 2008 / SRS 2008

Recently when working with Visual Studio 2008 / Sql Reporting Services 2008, the enviroment crashed. When reopened, the "Report Data" window was missing.

To make the window display again, it's easy to find, but in a slighty different place than the usual (not under the "Other Windows" section). It is located on the View menu itself, in my case, the last option on the menu (see image below).

I wish MS sometimes stop inventing. Wasted half an hour to figure it out. Thanks for the post.

Awesome, an actual answer. ReportData is not in my view dropdown and is not available to add, from what I can tell by right clicking the view button. Any help with this?

Awesome, an actual answer. ReportDate does not appear in my view dropdown nor is it present when I right click the view button. Would you know how to find it?

Thanks

I had the same problem, and I also had the problem of "Report Data" not being at the bottom of the list:
You need to have a report open, and click on it to make it active. Then "Report Data" will show up at the bottom of the "View" list.
