Colors in the Legend does not match with Bar Graph in SSRS 2005 issue

Last Modified: 2013-11-26

I have a bar graph with custom colors applied to it.
The custom colors displays nicely in the bar graph, but not in the legend.

The legend displays a mix of some of the "correct" custom colors, and some of the "wrong" standard colors. The colors in the legend vary, depending on the parameters passed to the report. Sometimes legend colors are all right, other times all wrong but must times a mix of right and wrongs.

The value for the custom color of the graph is retrieved from a field in the dataset. However I doubt that this is the cause of the error because, the bar graph colors are correct at all times, and I have validated thet correct color names are actually in the dataset.

Hope someone can help me out with this one...
