Hi,

I have a parameter that is created by adding available values:

parameter prompt: Expired

label    value
Yes       0
No        1

I am trying to display on the report: EXpired: Yes (if yes is selected from dropdown box)

here is the expression I wrote:   ="Expired: " + Parameters!ExpiredName.Label
I have tried CSTR(Parameters!ExpiredName.Label),... but does not work.

but I keep getting #Error displayed instead.

the warning is:  Warning               1              [rsInvalidExpressionDataType] The Value expression used in textrun ‘Textbox28.Paragraphs[0].TextRuns[0]’ returned a data type that is not valid.                

Thanks in advance

Are you sure you've got the name of the parameter right?  Try:

=Parameters!Expired.Label

If Expired is the name of the parameter then this should run fine.  Once that works, add the additional string part.
