SSRS reports  communicates with the SharePoint list  using the web service and you need to pass in CAML query. CAML query in MOSS 2007 does not support to query multiple lists (join) at same time. CAML joins are supported in SharePoint 2010.

To meet your above requirement you can try one of the following,

1) Create a separate custom list which has columns from both Order and OrderDetails list. You can have a custom event handler on both the list's so that the data is synched to the new custom list and the new list can be used for reporting

2) Create new SQL table with the data from the Order and OrderDetails list, so that you can query the SQL table from the reporting services.
