SSRS 2005 Format colum based on name

In SQL 2005, I have a report with a matrix. The report displays information grouped by a column called constituents. By defual the value data is displayed in a number format with 2 decimals, which is fine for every column except for 1. I want that column to be displayed with no decimals.

I've tried going into the matrix box properties for that field and on the format tab under the format code I put the following two expressions in:

=IIF(Fields!ConstituentName.Value="S#","g","F")

=IIF(Fields!ConstituentName.Value="S#","d0","F")

When I run the report, the S# column is still showing with 2 decimals, how can I get that column to display without decimals and keep every other column at 2 decimals?

try something like this...

=IIF(Fields!ConstituentName.Value="S#",Format(Fields!ConstituentName.Value,"###",Format(Fields!ConstituentName.Value,"###.##" ))

I tried that and I'm getting an error

Too many arguments to 'Public Function Format (Expression As Object, [Style As String = ""] ) As string.

I was able to make it work using the following format expression

=IIF(Fields!ConstituentName.Value="S#","n0","F")

Thank you for your help though.

Following format code worked:

=IIF(Fields!ConstituentName.Value="n0","g","F")
