    cant import DataProvider in flex builder3.


      If I try an use a DataProvider in actionscript in my flex project using FlexBuilder 3:



           import fl.data.DataProvider;


      I get a compiler error:


      Severity and Description    Path    Resource    Location    Creation Time    Id

      1172: Definition fl.data:DataProvider could not be found.    apitester/src    apitester.mxml    line 10    1280939279093    3500


      There are hundreds of posts on this subject, none with solution.  e.g. this one http://forums.adobe.com/thread/145845 has an answer which is meaningless.


      The  mxml page I am developing already has a ComboBox dragged onto it, this  does not magically put the DataProvider in a library or similar as  implied.


      Other people say this is not possible using flex builder.


      Why is it so hard?
