Trying to get Background colors to show on specifc dates

I'm trying to write a expression in the fill to  get colors to appear in 2 different groups. If a person has been here more than a year I want there date to turn white if they have been here less than  year I want there date to turn Orange. When I run my expression I keep getting errors or no colors will show. Below is my Expression

=IIF(DateDiff(DateInterval.Month,Lookup(Fields!AgentID.Value, Fields!AgentID_FON.Value, Fields!BLStartDate.Value, "BLDate"),
Parameters!OverallStartDate.Value)>=12,"White", "Orange")

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't see anything wrong off the cuff, but if you can move that Lookup into the source query instead, that would be ideal. Lookups on the client side are less efficient than letting the database engine handle them. If you post your query we can take a look at how to move the logic there.

In the meantime, I suspect the problem is in your Lookup not returning a value. Try just creating a new filed on your report and setting it's value to just the Lookup value: i.e., make sure that lookup is pulling the correct BLStartDate that you're expecting.
