Hi,

I have a textbox in my report with this:
= "Total Number of Incidents in Service Alliance queue: "&"          "&(Fields!seq.Value, "IncidentsInSAQueue")

and it is giving me an error:
C:\Reports\Astea\Astea\Service_Alliance_Incident_Report.rdl The value expression for the textbox textbox3 contains an error: [BC30198] ')' expected.
 Can someone please show me what the issue is?

Thansk,
Rhonda

Try this

= "Total Number of Incidents in Service Alliance queue: &     " + First(Fields!seq.Value,"IncidentsinSAQueue")

Try the following (assuming you want the first seq value from the dataset 'IncidentsinSAQueue'):

= "Total Number of Incidents in Service Alliance queue: " & "          " & First(Fields!seq.Value, "IncidentsInSAQueue")

Also, are you deliberately adding extra blank spaces? What you could do is put the blank spaces in the first part of the expression.. ie:

= "Total Number of Incidents in Service Alliance queue:           " & First(Fields!seq.Value, "IncidentsInSAQueue")

Hope this helps
