Trying to correct a SQL query for SSRS report

I have a query the produces this report in SSRS that I have attached.

SSRS Report
I am trying to bring in cc.valid_to so that I can change the expressions for a conditional formatting to reference against that but when I do it via SELECT it changes the results in the cell and does not show the "cell_value" for several records. How can I bring it in without affecting anything else?

I assume that by "bring it in" you mean add it to the SELECT clause which should only have an effect if you have multiple valid_to values per contact_number and thus the DISTINCT is causing additional rows to be brought in.  Otherwise, you are already referencing that column in the WHERE clause.  Is the query you posted the before or after?

Have you tried running the query against one of the data points that is changing on you to try to determine what is happening?

This is going to be fairly difficult to diagnose on this side without actual data.

Hi Brian,

The query is before. When I run the report the actual information is populated to cell data that is in effect pivoted to lay out all the information I am after. I want in some way a method of referencing activity_date so that I do an expression against valid_to. I do not need to see it but just need to run an expression against it.

There just isn't enough information to go off of here.  I'm looking at your solution through a keyhole.  I have almost no idea how your data relates or the structure of your report other than a screenshot.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I am currently reviewing it to see if there is another way of doing this. If it fails I will provide the sample data and expected result.
