I am trying to build a report in Business Intelligence Development Studio.  I want to count several columns of boolean data but only the ones that are 'True' or '1'

Here is the expression I was trying to use:
              =Count(IIF(Fields!IsChild.Value,0,1))
The expression above returns the same value as:
              =Count(Fields!IsChild.Value)
Both return a value of 16 which is the total of True's and False's in the column.

1) Iif syntax is (<expression>, <truevalue>, <falsevalue>), so you want to switch your 0,1 to 1,0 i think

2) Try switching to SUM instead of COUNT

Thanks, changing it to Sum did the trick.  I know I had tried this with Sum and it gave an error about field type but maybe I had something else wrong elsewhere.  Thanks for the help!
