How can I convert Excel vlookup to SSRS report?

Excel Vlookup table looks like this:
   Lookup    &      Return
Field Value          Value
      PP7                 7 (returned)
      PP12              12 (returned)

How can I perform a similar lookup in SSRS, maybe through a hidden table?

Hi rhservan,

First you need to create dataset for lookup. e.g "lookup".Lookup dataset should contains all fields.

For example,
SELECT LookupFieldValue,LookupReturnValue
FROM @Table

Open in new window


Your SSRS Expression whould be

=Lookup(Parameters!LookupParam.Value, Fields!LookupFieldValue.Value, Fields!LookupReturnValue.Value, "lookup")

Open in new window


Thanks,
Nishant
