How to make rdlc report from xml string?

Im trying to make a report viewer (RDLC REPORT) with xml string as data source using c#
This is the xml

"<Data><Result>success</Result><Rowset><Row><Date>08-09-2020</Date><TrNo>2015</TrNo><Debit>355</Debit><Credit></Credit><Remark>rem in 2020015-500 USD/Commession</Remark><Balance>-809.5</Balance></Row></Rowset></Data>"

So i have added a dataset called st_DS

this is a photo for the dataset

also created a rdlc report
rdlc report

i have added the following line of code

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>  
      <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server"></rsweb:ReportViewer>

and this is the code behind
string xml_resp = objCmd.Parameters["p_out"].Value.ToString();  
        XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(new System.IO.StringReader(xml_resp));  
        st_DS stt = new st_DS();  
        stt.ReadXml(new XmlTextReader(new System.IO.StringReader(xml_resp)));   
        ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode = ProcessingMode.Local;  
        ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath = Server.MapPath("st.rdlc");  
        ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(new ReportDataSource("st_DS",stt.Tables[0])); 

when i run the code it gives me a blank report with no data as
the text inside the red box is the response i got (XML)

any one can help me with this ,im so confused ! Thanks

Method 1

i have found the solution
simply add the following dataset

 Dataset ds = new Dataset();
    ds.ReadXml(new XmlTextReader(new System.IO.StringReader(xml_resp)));
     ReportDataSource datasource = new ReportDataSource("st_DS", ds.Tables["Row"]);

i have to merge the 2 datasets at the report DataSource to make it works !
