Experts:

I use this to group on in my RS report:

=Fields!Status.Value

The field contains the following STRING/TEXT data:

HAVE NOT PAID ACTIVATION FEE YET
PAID ACTIVITATION FEE
UNCOLLECTABLE ACTIVATION FEE (THIS PERIOD)
UNCOLLECTABLE ACTIVATION FEE (PRIOR PERIOD)
PREVIOUSLY RECONCILED

I need to know how to limit the display of data so that ONLY the following Groups are shown in the report:

HAVE NOT PAID ACTIVATION FEE YET
PAID ACTIVITATION FEE
UNCOLLECTABLE ACTIVATION FEE (THIS PERIOD)

I need the SYNTAX that will do this so that I can enter it in to the EXPRESSION somewhere????

This is RS NOT SQL....

CRXIuser2005,

Assuming you are using a Table object to display everything you could always use the Filter option (Right click on Table > Properties > Filter)

No problem - Sometimes when under the gun to get a deadline done the solutions seem more difficult to come by :)
