Problem with SSRS expression

I have a unitprice column. In my report if the prodcode is like "*elev*" I need the unitprice to equal 0.00

Here is the expression I am using. It doesn't work. I don't receive an error, it just seems to be ignored. Is there something wrong with my expression?

=iif(Fields!ProdCode.Value LIKE "*elev*", 0.0,Fields!UnitPrice.Value)

try:

=iif(Fields!ProdCode.Value LIKE "%elev%", 0.0,Fields!UnitPrice.Value)

unless I'm mistaken the wildcard is %

As far as I know you can not use Like in an expression.
Try :
=IIF(Trim(Fields!ProdCode.Value) = "eleven",Fields!UnitPrice.Value,  0.0)

If you have to use Like then you will have to do it in a Stored procedure.
Then the report will only show what you are looking for.
