HI Below is my date expression in ssrs.Basically it is giving
the date 20 years from the date of the field I specified.

If the field is todays date which is 15 sep 2011 then it is
returning 15 sep 2031. But I want to return 1 day less which
is 14 sep 2031.

Can any one re-write the expression for me ?

= format(dateadd(dateinterval.Year,20, Fields!AccreditationDate.Value),"dd/MM/yyyy")

Thanks

Try this ...

=DatePart("D",DateADD("D",-1,Fields!AccreditationDate.Value))&"/"&
DatePart("M",Fields!AccreditationDate.Value)&"/"&DatePart("Y",DateADD("Y",20,Fields!AccreditationDate.Value))

Right Click on Field and open property window.

Select Number Tab and select format as date and also choose options as you like (DD/MM/YY, MM-DD-YYYY etc. etc.)
