I am trying to format the dates to be shown as:

Friday, March 18, 2011

Why does this statement keeps complaining about converting an integer to a string?

="Date of Report: "+WeekDayName(WeekDay( Globals!ExecutionTime), 0)+", "+MonthName(Globals!ExecutionTime,0)+ str(DatePart("Day", Globals!ExecutionTime))+", "+str(DatePart("Year", Globals!ExecutionTime))

Is this what you're trying to do?

="Date of Report: "+ WeekDayName(WeekDay(Now()),0)+ ", " + MonthName(Month(Now())) + Day(Now()).ToString() + ", " + Year(Now()).ToString()

All I wanted was the date to appear as:

Friday, March 18, 2011. I will attempt your code on Monday. Thanks.

It should be as simple as this
="Date of Report: " & Globals!ExecutionTime.ToLongDateString()

That was a lot simpler than what I was trying to do.
Thank you.
