Hi all,

I have an expression on a report as follows:

=iif(sum(Fields!EstHours.Value) = 0,"N/A",sum(Fields!ACT_COMP_HRS.Value)/sum(Fields!EstHours.Value))

From time to time, the value of EstHours is zero. When this occurs, my expression returns a #Error as opposed to the N/A I require. I understand this is because the iif statement needs to evaluate the whole expression which includes the divide by zero. My question is, how do I remedy this?

Thanks in advance
