I created a custom code  in the reporting properties,code section. Let say the code name is Matrixcell.
when I code to the cotrol and dit Edit Expression, I type Code... however, I did not see the name Matrixcell available in the dropdown options. What could I have done wrong?

Hi, you've done nothing wrong. Intellisense doesn't work within the cell expression builder.
You have to 'code blind'.

Tim is right some times I will code in VB2005-2008 to test it. Then move it to my Code tab in the report.

or you can build all of your code in a custom assembly, of course...but the references you make to it in the cell expression builder will still not recognise any of your functions.

I force and type the function name in the custom code window it only works at run time. That's good thing you pointed out Tim!
