=IIF(Fields!Sales.Value > Fields!OrderCost.Value,Fields!OrderCost.Value,IIF(Fields!Sales.Value < (Fields!OrderCost.Value)/2,(Fields!OrderCost.Value)/2,Fields!Sales.Value))

Trying to write a if statement thats leaves orders cost alone if it small but changes the cost to 50% of sale is its more than 50%

For SSRS

I think my Syntax is wrong..

try this

=IIF(Fields!Gross_Sales.Value > Fields!OrderCost.Value,Fields!OrderCost.Value,IIF(Fields!Gross_Sales.Value < Fields!OrderCost.Value/2,Fields!OrderCost.Value/2,Fields!Gross_Sales.Value))

probably it wont make any difference... this is same as excel...

Sorry i it's hard to do it like this (i don't understand entirely this but changes the cost to 50% of sale is its more than 50%)

Try removing () (i dont know is that have impact) (Fields!OrderCost.Value)/2,(Fields!OrderCost.Value)/2

this should work:

=IIF(Fields!Gross_Sales.Value > Fields!OrderCost.Value, Fields!OrderCost.Value, IIF(Fields!Gross_Sales.Value > Fields!OrderCost.Value/2, Fields!OrderCost.Value/2, Fields!Gross_Sales.Value))

Looking at your Excel formula, I think you've transposed the cells when translating to SSRS.

Your Excel formula is;
If(I8>H8,H8,If(I8<H8/2,H8/2, I8))

Where
I8 = Cost
H8 = Sales

Therefore your SSRS formula should be;
=IIf(Fields!OrderCost.Value > Fields!Gross_Sales.Value, Fields!Gross_Sales.Value, IIf(Fields!OrderCost.Value < Fields!Gross_Sales.Value/2, Fields!Gross_Sales.Value/2, Fields!OrderCost.Value))

Extrapolate that out and you get;
=IIf(2590.75 > 5850, 5850, IIf(2590.75 < 5850/2, 5850/2, 2590.75))
=IIf(2590.75 > 5850, 5850, IIf(2590.75 < 2925, 2925, 2590.75))

The answer would then evaluate to 2925.

I think that should be the answer you needed!

Cheers
Chris
