SSRS expression errors

I am trying to figure out how to hide or show a Row / textbox based on a SQL Query retruning a row of data or not. The expression is below:
=IIF(fields!TermsAndConditionsForPO.Value = "", True, False )

When I run the report True or false is displayed instead of either hidding or showing the  T&C conditions.

Also I am trying to place an "X" in a row if the data retruned is a "1" from the SQL query. The expression for that is below. The SQL query does retrun a 1 or 0.
 =IIF(Fields!UID.Value="1",IIF(Fields!UNITCOST.Value>=5000,"X",""),"")

Please help
Thank you

Where do you have the expression?  It should be in the textbox's right-click:Properties, Visibility, select 'Show or hide based on an expression' radio button, hit the fx expression button, and paste it in there.

you have to set the condition to the visibility propertie of the Textbox

=IIF(fields!TermsAndConditionsForPO.Value = "", True, False ) , but changing the visibility of an Text box in an Tabular report doesn't hide the row the of the Tabular report. to hide Row we need to set the condition to the row visibility property

In you condition

=IIF(Fields!UID.Value="1",IIF(Fields!UNITCOST.Value>=5000,"X",""),"")

In this record will go to true condition (IIF(Fields!UNITCOST.Value>=5000,"X","")) only when the UID value is 1 else will got the else condition and display empty "",

alos the True condition will display "X" only the value of UnitCost >= 5000.

Please verify your condition is valid.

I changed my expression to: =IIF(Fields!UID.Value="1","X","")
However, when I run the report all of the rows in the UID column have an "X" when I run the query only one of the rows in the UID column returns an "X". I run the query is SQL Mgmt studio. SO, I am very consfused why all of the columns when the report is ran return an "X" and when I run the query in SQL Mgmt studio only one row/record returns an "X"

The best way is to change your query.
To only give you the data that you need; based on the what condition you are looking for.
then just group the report by that condittion.
