Hi Experts

We have a Report Viewer 2008 in VB.net and Visual Studio it runs correctly in Windows 7 but prints #Error when the PC was replaced with Windows 8 Machine

The Code is

=IIF (Parameters!PaymentDate.value <> "",
"Paid With Thanks on " & Parameters!PaymentDate.value,
IIF (Parameters!OutStandingAmount.value <> 0,
"Outstanding Amount "  & Parameters!OutStandingAmount.value, ""))

This shows as #Error

Thanks

Most probably, it's not the OS's fault. Please compare the installed versions of involved softwares and try to keep them in sync.

Thanks

But I forgot to mention in the same report the following code works correctly ?

=IIF (Parameters!PaymentDate.value <> "",
 "Payment Due" & date.value(Parameters!PaymentDate.value), "")

Would the added date.value missing from the first IIF statement be the problem

Sorry, my programming abilities don't include VB.
You should still see if the program versions are the same, since win8 itself will most probably not interpret the code differently compared to 7.

I don't do the installs and I checked with the person who installed it and he said the install and versions are correct
he also installed the same access database and programs on a windows 7 and it worked fine

Ok, so make sure your system is patched (optional updates as well, since those fix many bugs) and if the problem persists, you might have found a bug. But I cannot really judge it since I don't code this.
