This seems like it should be extremely easy to do.

I have a report that just lists quantity and description of a product.

If the quantity is 10 or less, I want the quantity field to display in red, otherwise black.

Where do I put this when creating a report using SQL Server Reporting Services.

Thanks.

you need to use expression of color property of textBox.

and apply following expression at there
=IIF(quantity <=10,red,black)

you can apply this ysntax everywhere in report.
e.g. in detail section where this type of thing mostly used or page header , page footer....etc.


but for u r situation should be in detail section.

expression can be used for most of the property.


cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
