Hi all,

I am trying to remove the carriage returns (annoying squares shown in the attachment) from my report.

Currently, I am trying to use the following expression to return the value:
=Replace(First(Fields!YourField.Value, "DataSource"),CHR(10),VbCrLf)

However, this is not working.

Can anyone please advise?

Thanks

Just a thought ...  If you're using stored procedures or views as the data source behind SSRS data sets, it would make more senese to 'scrub' CHAR(13) and CHAR(10)'s out in T-SQL using the REPLACE() function, then have to deal with them in SSRS.
