Format Date Expression in SSRS

I need to be able to create an expression that takes today's date =FormatDateTime(Today()) and format it like 23-OCT-08 minus 1

So the value would actually be 22-OCT-08

This should do it
=Format(Date.Today.AddDays(-1), "dd-MMM-yy")

SSRS does not recognize the method in the expression window but it will work when you run the report

Actually, I got it to work after messing with what you originally gave me:

=Format(Today().AddDays(-1), "dd-MMM-yy")

Thanks for the tip and the crutch to get me here :)
