This is a reporting services question.

I have a field called PunchedIn as 1 or 0. When i use reporting services and show that, it shows 1 or 0. Now, i want to change that to Yes if it shows 1 or No if it shows 0 when reporting it. I dont want to change it in the database.

I tried the IFF command
IFF(Fields!Punch.Value =1, TRUE,FALSE)
and it gives me True and False but i cant change it for it to say Punched In , Not Punched in.

Please tell me how i can do this in reporting services. I am learning it so if you could be a bit more detailed i will apprecaite it!

You've got the right idea but you don't need to use true or false; just use the text you want displayed in the cell:
=IIF(Fields!Punch.Value = 1, "Yes", "No")
