I'm developing a report from a SP, using SSRS 2005. I'm using a matrix report to provide the base info. What I'm needing is to insert a % calculation between each time period. Here's what I'm looking for:

                        2012    % +/-    2011    % +/-    2010   % +/-     2009
Total Apps       110        ?         150          ?          130        ?         50

I have the data for each year rendering correctly. What I'm needing is the % +/-, which is based on a comparison between the current and previous year (the ?). For example, the first ? would be 110/150 * 100. Is there a way to do this?

afaik a matrix can have only one cell that is an aggregate (sum, count, first, etc.), not two with an expression.  

So, the only way to pull this off would be to have a cross join in the SP that is the data source for a tablix, with the headers as the first row, column names something like year_1, year_1_pct, year_2, year_2_pct, etc.

Good luck.
