I am using SSRS 2008 and currently working on a matrix report with one column group and one row group. The column group has Month Names and the row group has product names. The detail cells in the matrix show the sales amounts for the products by months. I have a need that for the first month column in the matrix, the sales amounts need to have a different expression than the rest of the months. For ex: lets say, for the first month column, the sales amount needs tobe multiplied by 0.8 and for the subsequent months, show the sales amount as is from the dataset. How can I write an expresssion in the detail cell to conditionally identify the first column value in the matrix vs the rest? Need a sample expression that I can look at. (The above is an example scenario and so I am not looking at solutions to do this in the sql stored procs)
