I am fairly new to SQL Reporting Services. I am trying to use custom code for the first time (which I have attached) and I am not understanding the "References" tab. What am I to fill out here? What would the "Assembly Name" be and what needs to be put in the "Class Name" and "Instance Name" sections?

Any help would be great....Thanks.
Public Function InventotyType(ByVal invttype as String) as String   

IF invttype = "C" Then

  Return "Component Part"

End If

IF invttype = "L" Then

  Return "Labor"

End If

IF invttype = "F" Then

  Return "Finished Good"

End If

IF invttype = "M" Then

 Return "Machine Overhead"

End If

IF invttype = "D" Then

  Return "Other Direct Costs"

End If

IF invttype = "O" Then

  Return "Other Type of Item"

End If

IF invttype = "R" Then

  Return "Raw Material"

End If

IF invttype = "S" Then

  Return "Subassembly"

End If

IF invttype = "" Then

  Return "No Type"

End If

End Function

I believe you're mixing 2 different ways of integrating custom code into SSRS.  Your questions are about using a custom assembly but I think what will be the easiest for your case is the method using embedded code.

Both methods are described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms155798(SQL.90).aspx

Ok, so I have read the article from MSDN and I'm still confused. I'm using the following code: =code.InventoryType(Fields!invttype.Value)

and I get the following error:
[rsCompilerErrorInExpression] The Value expression for the textbox invttype contains an error: [BC30456] 'InventoryType' is not a member of 'ReportExprHostImpl.CustomCodeProxy'.

Again any suggestions will be great.

Code should get a capitalized C:
=Code.InventoryType(Fields!invttype.Value)
 
Also check your function name, it contains a typo (InventotyType)
