I'm looking for a way to alternate the background color of a group header in reporting services.  I'm currently using this code to alternate the detail rows to create a "green bar" effect, but it doesn't work in the group header because its still counting the number of rows, instead of the group headers.
=iif(rownumber(nothing) mod 2 = 1, "AliceBlue", "White")
