Hi,
I have used the following expression in ssrs

=IIf((Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("*LAB*","*SIGNUP*", "*QDISPLAY*", "*PUB*"),
"Public",
IIf(Fields!DEPARTMENT.Value = "Library"
AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("*LAP*"),
"Public","Not Public")

and it is giving the error
the value expression for the field ('=IIf((Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("*LAB*","*SIGNUP*", "*QDISPLAY*", "*PUB*"),
"Public",
IIf(Fields!DEPARTMENT.Value = "Library"
AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("*LAP*"),
"Public","Not Public")
[BC30198]') expected.


Please help me!!

Is it possible that you're running into problems with null values? Try putting a test for IsNothing before everything else.... For example:

IIF(IsNothing(Fields!ASSET_ID.value),"Nothing",IIF(...

The following expression worked for me.

=IIf((Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*LAB*") AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*SIGNUP*")
AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*QDISPLAY*") AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*PUB*"), "Public",
IIf(Fields!DEPARTMENT.Value = "Library"
AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("%LAP%"),
"Public?" , "Not Public"))

But is there any simple way to do this.

Your latest has "%" as the wildcards, rather than the "*" that may be causing your issue with the "Not Public" always appearing. To check if your query is working correctly, make sure to pull back the Asset_Id field along with your calculated field.

try this please :

=IIf((Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*LAB*") OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*SIGNUP*")
OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*QDISPLAY*") OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("*PUB*"), "Public",
IIf(Fields!DEPARTMENT.Value = "Library" AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("%LAP%"),
"Public?" , "Not Public"))

But one question, do we not use % along with the LIKE everwhere in your query as similar to how you have to used in "%LAP%"

i am not sure, whether the below can be right... we need to use % as the wild card matching operator with LIKE..not sure why you had used * for some and % for only one. Test it out.

IIf((Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("%LAB%") OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("%SIGNUP%")
OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("%QDISPLAY%") OR (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE  ("%PUB%"), "Public",
IIf(Fields!DEPARTMENT.Value = "Library" AND (Fields!ASSET_ID_.Value) LIKE ("%LAP%"),
"Public?" , "Not Public"))

Thanks

if * is the wild card character which needs to be used in SSRS then replace the % with * in all the occurrances in the given query and give it a try.
