SQL Reporting zero out negative numbers

I have a SQL report that has a table in it. Column C is Colum A - Column B which sometimes produces negative numbers. Is there an expression I can use to just have column C show a zero instead of negative numbers?

Column C current expression =Fields!User_Define_1.Value - Fields!Act_Labor_Units_TTD.Value

From memory, you can use IIF as follows:

Iif (Fields|User_Define_1.Value < Fields!Act_Labor_Units_TTD.Value, 0  , Fields!User_Define_1.Value - Fields!Act_Labor_Units_TTD.Value)

bkpierce,

I am puzzled.  I posted a syntactically and arithmetically identical suggestion in http:#a30119550, and posted that first, and yet you selected http:#a30119599 as the answer.

I would have been pleased with a split, but I do feel the current disposition is unfair.

Patrick

You are correct my apologies, you should have received the points as your post was first, I must have accidentally over looked it. I am not sure how to undo and assign the points to you. I'm guessing a moderator would have to be contacted?

Thanks :)  I really would be pleased with a split, as chances are pretty good that Tyug and I were typing simultaneously.

Most customers want to see the neg numbers (If we are talking about money) We use brackets around our anwers in our reports to show that it is neg.
