Default Date Parameter "Error During Processing"

I'm having a problem with a DateAdd function in SQL Server Reporting Services as default value for a parameter.  I've entered the expression "=DateAdd("dd",-60,Today())" as the default value and it doesn't show any errors in the expression builder.  But, when I go to preview the report I get the error "An error occurred during local report processing.  Error during processing of 'ActivityFrom' report parameter."

Any thoughts?

use getDate() instead of Today()

It doesn't recognize getDate.   I get the squiggly lines underneath it.

Be sure to include the open and close parentheses.  GETDATE()

This is exactly how it appears in the default value box: =DateAdd("dd",-60, getDate())

Drop the = and see if that doesn't help. ;-)

No luck there, either.  When I drop "=" the whole expression gets squigglied in the expression builder and I get the error "The definition of the report '/Member Activities by Chapter' is invalid.  The property 'DefaultValue' or report parameter 'ActivityFrom' doesn't have the expected type."

GetDate works fine but in SQL Server ;) in SSRS you are right using Today()

The parameter you want to use is d, dd doesn't exist.

Changing "dd" to "d" worked like a charm.
