Experts:

I'm using this field for displaying a PERCENTAGE calc of 2 different COUNT FIELDS in my RS Report.

=cint(count(Fields!ORDERID.Value, "OrderCount") / Fields!CALLCOUNT.Value*100)& " %"

However, on occasion one or both of the COUNT FIELDS will be NULL and so I get an #ERROR displayed in the report when this happens. I would like this percentage calculation to display "N/A" when this happens instead of the system standard #ERROR.

Can someone help me with the SYNTAX needed in order to do this?

Try this:

=iif(isnothing(cint(count(Fields!ORDERID.Value, "OrderCount") / Fields!CALLCOUNT.Value*100)& " %"),"N/A",cint(count(Fields!ORDERID.Value, "OrderCount") / Fields!CALLCOUNT.Value*100)& " %")

Let's try a different approach :)
=iif(isnothing(Fields!ORDERID.Value) or isnothing(Fields!callcount.value),"N/A",cint(count(Fields!ORDERID.Value, "OrderCount") / Fields!CALLCOUNT.Value*100)& " %")
