I am using XOR encryption to encrypt a value.  I want the value to show up in a SSRS report, how do I decrypt it using SSRS (Sql Server Reporting Services)?  Below is the code for encryption
Public Shared Function XOREncryption(ByVal key As String, ByVal value As String) As String
            Dim intXORValue1 As Integer
            Dim intXORValue2 As Integer
            Dim strDataOut As String = ""
 
            For lonDataPtr As Long = 0 To (value.Length - 1)
                intXORValue1 = Asc(value.Substring(lonDataPtr, 1))
                intXORValue2 = Asc(key.Substring(lonDataPtr Mod key.Length, 1))
                If (intXORValue1 = intXORValue2) Then
                    strDataOut &= Chr(intXORValue2)
                Else
                    strDataOut &= Chr(intXORValue1 Xor intXORValue2)
                End If
            Next lonDataPtr
 
            Return strDataOut
        End Function

None of these answer my question, they just say how to do XOREncryption which I already have completed with the attached code..  I need to know how to do it in a SQL Reporting Service report..

Figured it out, put the code above from me in the "Report Properties", Tab "Code".

Then call it like the following..

="Field decrypted is: "+code.XOREncryption("Key",Fields!DbField.Value)
