SSRS Conditional Formatting - Muliple conditions

I am setting up a conditional format for background colours in a report.  See attachment for example of the report content.

I have created this expression under text box properties/fill...

=iif((Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 08:00:00")), "Green", (iif(Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 08:10:00"), "red", "white")))

So, if time is before 8am colour is green, beween 8:00  and 8:10 colour is white, after 8:10 is red.  

What I have above works however I only want to apply it to rows where the Load field is "first".  For rows where Load is "Last" I want to use a similar conditional format to the above, but with time values for later on in the day.

Theoretically I want to have something like..

if load = "first" then do
=iif((Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 08:00:00")), "Green", (iif(Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 08:10:00"), "red", "white")))

else

if load = "last" then do
=iif((Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 15:00:00")), "Green", (iif(Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 15:10:00"), "red", "white")))

Is this possible in SSRS?

Hi,

Should be something like:

=IIF(Fields!Load.Value = "first",
iif((Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 08:00:00")), "Green", (iif(Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 08:10:00"), "red", "white")))
,
iif((Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 15:00:00")), "Green", (iif(Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 15:10:00"), "red", "white")))
)

i.s. just nesting your existing formulae.

Another option, and easier to read/maintain, is using the Switch instead of the IIF:

=Switch(
  (Fields!Load.Value = "first") AND (Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 08:00:00")), "Green",
  (Fields!Load.Value = "first") AND (Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 08:10:00")), "red",
  (Fields!Load.Value = "last") AND (Fields!time.Value < cdate(Today & " 15:00:00")), "Green",
  (Fields!Load.Value = "last") AND (Fields!time.Value > cdate(Today & " 15:10:00")), "red",
  True, "white"
)

Thanks  ValentinoV, good article.  Switch looks like the way to go..  however using the code you posted above everything is coloured white?

edit.. Just realized I needed to change the "First" and "Last" fields to start with capital letters, its working fine now, thanks
