How to use session variables in field names of report (.rdcl)

Hello, I have a report and need to set a field source depending on a session var. I know the fields I use have to be declared, so I wonder if I can get it to work.


Session("Language") is "de-DE"

In gridview I can evaluate a field like this:
Text='<%# Eval("FieldName" & Session("Language")) %>'

So when I have a column named "Fieldnamede-DE" it will evaluate correctly.

In reportviewer the values are assigned like this:
<Textbox Name="lblProjektBezeichnung">

So my question is:
Is there a way to use something like:
  <Value>=Fields!Fieldname" & Session("Language") & ".Value</Value>

or can I use/write a function that returns the correct value. If so, how and where.
Thank you.
