Using IsNull() in Reporting Services?

I can't seem to get the IsNull function to work from within Reporting Services.  Essentially I need to check a series of rows to see If a particular unique identifier is null and if it is, return a statement like 'this value is null'.

It returns that isnull is not declared.

Ideas?

Use:

IIF(IsNothing(Fields!MyField.Value),"Condition if true", "Condition if false")


The key is IsNothing

You can use isnull in MS-SQL Server

select isnull(<FieldName>, 'this value is null') Table_Name
