SSRS report won't show the data

I have a single query that runs fine in SSMS and also runs in the Query in VStudio.  There's a dropdown query also, works fine.  But, when I run the report, I get nothing.  Two parameters, a persons id number and debt (from the dropdown.)   Any ideas on what to look for?

<wild guesses that's been correct before>

Any chance the Detail row (three lines in grey button to the right) in your Tablix control was accidentally deleted?  
Is your data set correctly connected to a Stored Procedure/View that contains this query?
Does the Data Set, Parameters, connect the two parameters the SP needs to the parameter prompts in the report?

Nothing's been deleted, but I'll recreate the tablix to be sure.  I just created this.  I can run the queries in VS and they both run fine.  Prompts for the parameters are there and it requests the parameters when I run the main query in VS.

Recreating the tablix didn't help.  Even if I add a text box for just the person's name, it won't show.

Figured it out.  My dropdown query had only two fields.  A created row_number and the actual field "Debt_Type".  So it only saw the 0 and 1's.  I added another field to that query that also pointed to the Debt_type and in the part for the select all, I added a '0' as the Debt_type.  Then in the report parameter settings, I used the new field in place of the row_number and that fixed it.  Thanks

So ... no points for troubleshooting advice?  

Contributing experts are not real wild on open-ended questions that end with 'Nevermind, I figured it out...', with nothing in the original question that would have helped get to that point, with no points awarded.

I've finally gotten all my totals and they seem right.  But I'm using the following to format for hh:mm.  It's giving me an extra digit on the end and I can't seem to get rid of it.

=FORMAT(Floor(SUM(Fields!F_OneOnOne_Min.Value + Fields!F_CaseMgmt_Min.Value)/ 60), "00") + ":" + Format((SUM(Fields!F_OneOnOne_Min.Value + Fields!F_CaseMgmt_Min.Value Mod 60)), "00")

Any suggestions?
