HideDuplicates Error in Expression
Posted on 2010-11-18
I have a report parameter on my SSRS report which will select the type of output depending on the chosen option. There are 2 items in the dropdown (Excel and PDF). I have created a group named GroupID, so the 2 selections in the HideDuplicates property of the textbox is Dataset1 and GroupID.
I want to Hide duplicates for when the user selects Excel ,but not to hide the duplicates for when PDF is selected. Since the "Containing group or dataset" field has an expression option next to it, I assume you are able to put in an expression for which dataset to use. Here is my expression:
=iif(Parameters!OutputTo.Value = "Excel", DataSet1, GroupID)
It gives me the following error:
The value ‘=iif(Parameters!OutputTo.Value = "Excel", DATASET1, GroupID)’ of the HideDuplicates property of the textbox ‘Fld1’ is invalid. This value is the name of a group or data set over which to apply the hiding: it should either be the name of a group containing the current group or, to hide duplicates over the entire data set, the name of the current data set.
I've tried Dataset and GroupID with and without quotes to no avail.
Any ideas on how I can get around this error?
