I have a stacked bar chart with conditional formatting on the series fill depending on a severity field and the legend colors are not matching.  Below is my conditional formatting on the series, why does the legend not match?

=Switch(Fields!severity.Value = "Sev4", "CornflowerBlue",
Fields!severity.Value = "Sev3", "Gray",
Fields!severity.Value = "Sev2", "Gold",
Fields!severity.Value = "Sev1", "Red")

I don't know where did you set the property.

Please find the below screenshot.

First you need to right click on series of the Graph and go to series property.

Go to Fill section and set the customer color for the series there.

And also please note that comparison in ssrs in case sensitive. Please check your data as well..
For your reference switch example
=Switch(
Fields!Region.Value="Canada","Purple"
,Fields!Region.Value="France","Yellow"

)

Open in new window

Hope it will help you.

I did put my conditional logic under Series Properties > Fill.  The chart is reflecting the appropriate color logic, its the legend that just shows the same colors for each value.  Adding screenshot...

It should work as it's working in my case.

appears it was the SWITCH statement.  I converted the logic to a nested IIF and it worked.  thx for your help
