I'm taking this code from Access and modifing it to use in SSRS. These strings won't return anything but a 0, or a 0%. Any suggestions?

I believe the problem is in translation from Access to SSRS syntax, your IsDBNull should be just IsNull in SSRS.  Try the code below.

OK - I took the "DB" out of there, but now there is an error when i go to preview the report saying IsNull is not declared...I thought i had given arguments?

So you are using this in Code, not directly in a control?

<I took the "DB" out of there, but now there is an error when i go to preview the report saying IsNull is not declared>
In which formula?

Can you post a sample of this database, so we can see exactly what is happening in full context.

Try replacing the IsNull with IsNothing.

Ignore my posts.

I thought this was from SSRS to Access.

Look at the inspection values  under common functions when you edit a formula
