I am trying to build a report in Reporting Services 2005, which could be exported to Excel.
what i need is that the report would be able to export some formulas from reporting services as well.

the problem starts when i try to sum something :

this formula i have created in reporting services
=(ReportItems!X.Value+ReportItems!Y.Value-ReportItems!Z.Value*255

after exporting looks something like this =_X&_Y-_Z*255

but it should be =_X+_Y-_Z*255

i tried to convert the fields before adding them to formula like =CDbl(ReportItems!X.Value)
but it doesn't work when i'm trying to include a result of one formula in calculation of another result...

any suggestions?
