I am trying to identify all non distinct customer id's in a SSRS report by changing the back ground color. The code below only identifies the 1st non unique customer number the first time it is repeated.
=iif(CountDistinct (Fields!custid.Value) <>1,"transparent","RED")

Check the scope of what you're doing.  Are the customers in the same scope that you're doing the count distinct in?

There are two row groups. Is this part of the problem?

CountDistinct is going to Count the Distinct values of All your custid values in the default scope you are in, inner most grouping.  See technet article for how it works, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms155923.aspx.  If you are grouping by custid then this will work as you can use that grouping scope to do the count, but it will not work in just a normal list or table without the group.

In this case Group one is Product, Group two is Sales Person and then I have my custid field is there any way to identify the duplicate custid's by changing the background color?
