Where is my XML Data Source?

Trying to bind a grid view to an xml file in my VS 2005 Windows Forms
app. There is not XML Connection option in my list of possible data
sources, as shown on this screen:

I only have Database, Object, and Web Service listed in the New
Connection dialog window. How do i choose XML as an option??

You don't need a connection to an XML file. It's not a database.

You can programmatically load the XML file into your DataSet and use it
with your grid.
