Adding textbox in SQL Reporting services

Guy thanks for the help in SSRS.

What I have now is a complet table with one query.

I need to add tables in the query.

something like.

Table 1 + Table 2 = Table3 (Total of 1 and 2)
then take Table 3 Total and add something in Table 4.

Can you do math with the Textbox names in the talbes?

You can add different values from multiple data sources; Click on 'Expression' when you right click on the cell you want the value in, then select the value 1 from Dataset 1 then value 2 from dataset 2, so you expression will end up with something like this:

=Fields!Dataset1.Value1 + Fields!Dataset2.Value2

Steve I tried that.

=Fields!EnergyClassic.Value * Fields!DataSetSpectraBTUFactor.Value

this is the error I got.

[rsFieldReference] The Value expression for the textbox EnergyClassic refers to the field DataSetSpectraBTUFactor.  Report item expressions can only refer to fields within the current data set scope or, if inside an aggregate, the specified data set scope.
Build complete -- 1 errors, 0 warnings

Any Help.

you cannot reference items from another dataset like that, you can only reference aggregates and use a SCOPE of the dataset.  Don't know your exact values but something like this in Table4 could refference the total of a field from Table3.
