SSRS 2008 How to replicate RunningTotal and evaluate options that are available in Crystal

Posted on 2013-06-06
Last Modified: 2013-07-02
I have a crystal report that I am rebuilding inside of SSRS. In my crystal report I have a running total field that is the Sum of "detail.amount". I have a formula I use to evaluate and return the amount if {@StringType}= 'h'. "StringType" is a formula field that gives me left({Detail.joballoc},1)

Can someone tell me how I can accomplish the same thing inside of SSRS?

Any help is much appreciated.

There are plenty of links if you search Google to get running total.

Check this link:

Running totals per page in SSRS to display cumulative totals.

Did you read my entire question? I know there is a RunningValue operator but I need to place conditions on it. I explained my scenario. Any further assistance is appreciated.

This is what I have constructed based on what PatelAlpesh provided. When the report is run it displays "Error". Do you see anything wrong with this expression?

=RunningValue(IIF(LEFT(Fields!joballoc.Value,1) = "H", Fields!detail_amount.Value, 0),Sum,"DataSet1")

Sorry I missed your point in my previous answer.

What exactly is the error message?

Warning      1      [rsAggregateOfMixedDataTypes] The Value expression for the textrun ‘Textbox109.Paragraphs[0].TextRuns[3]’ uses an aggregate function on data of varying data types.  Aggregate functions other than First, Last, Previous, Count, and CountDistinct can only aggregate data of a single data type.

Please try few things:

=RunningValue(IIF(LEFT(Fields!joballoc.Value,1) = "H", Fields!detail_amount.Value, Nothing),Sum,"DataSet1") 

Open in new window


=RunningValue(IIF(LEFT(Fields!joballoc.Value,1) = "H", CDbl(Fields!detail_amount.Value), CDbl(0)),Sum,"DataSet1") 

Open in new window

Try both these ways and let me know.

Can't thank you enough.

=RunningValue(IIF(LEFT(Fields!joballoc.Value,1) = "H", Fields!detail_amount.Value, Nothing),Sum,"DataSet1") worked!
