I have a report that I am writing in SSRS.  In the report header, Iv'e got a textbox that I need to display "Wednesday 11/10/2010 yadda yadda yadda".  How do I get the "Wednesday"?

Currently I've got the textbox value set to:

= "For " & Parameters!ForDate.DayOfWeek & " " & Parameters!ForDate.Value & " yadda yadda yadda " 

but that just yields "For 0  11/8/2010 yadda yadda yadda"

How do I easily convert the numerical day value to text without a lot of syntax?

Thanks.
