Are you looking for a way to call a function in a custom assembly or would you like to embed the function code inside the report?  Both are possible but the implementation is of course different.

To embed a VB function inside the report, right-click the yellow report background and select Report Properties... Switch to the Code tab and type (or paste) your function there.

The easiest is to first implement the function in a simple VB.NET Forms application, then copy it from there.  That way you can test the function before using it in the report (which doesn't support real debugging).

Here is the syntax to call the function in report expressions.  Imagine a function called YourFunction that takes one parameter:

=Code.YourFunction(Fields!SomeField.Value)
