ColdFusion Report Builder

digitalwise asked
Last Modified: 2015-09-24
I am trying to use CF Report Builder because the client needs a pretty nicely broken out PDF report.    If I could just get it to output the data, it is going to be VERY pretty.    The code in the current HTML report is

<CFIF isdate(primaryreviewerdate)>#val(datediff("d", PrimaryReviewerDate, now()))#<CFELSE>0</CFIF> Days

Open in new window

This is my translation.  

iif(isdate(query.PrimaryReviewerDate), DateDiff(d, query.PrimaryReviewerDate, getdate()), DE("0 Days"))

Open in new window

Getting the error:   If the expression is a string, ensure that it is within quotes. Error: iif(isdate(query.PrimaryReviewerDate), DateDiff(d, query.PrimaryReviewerDate, getdate()), DE("0 Days")) is not a valid ColdFusion expression.

Anyone have any ideas??
