Can you elaborate on your question please.

I don't know, for example, where you are trying your code, or what your SQL code is.

That field doesn't look empty. It would show up as 'NULL' in management studio if it was. If the 'empty' fields always contain something else then a number you might try:
=IsNumeric(Fields!SALESREP.Value)
This should return true if the field has a number and false if it has anything else. (Like the strange character in your screenshot).
