Here is my Expression that is trying to refer something out of scope:

=iif(Fields!fee_name.Value<>"monthly"
, StrConv(Replace(Fields!fee_name.Value,"_"," "), VbStrConv.ProperCase)
, iif(ReportItems("Text58").value > Fields!fee.Value
, StrConv(Replace(Fields!fee_name.Value,"_"," "), VbStrConv.ProperCase) &" (" & FormatCurrency(Fields!fee.Value) & ")"
, StrConv(Replace(Fields!fee_name.Value,"_"," "), VbStrConv.ProperCase)
)
)

It is giving me an error
Error 2 [rsReportItemReference] The Value expression for the text box ‘fee_name’ refers to the report item ‘Text58’. Report item expressions can only refer to other report items within the same grouping scope or a containing grouping scope. Letters in the names of report items must use the correct case.

The error message seems self-explanatory: what is your question?

I suggest that you read this to help your understanding of scope.

I can't give a specific answer, because that would require me to look into the design of your report.

But, based on the error message, it seems that the expression is being evaluated at a point in the report where the Text58 field is not defined or invalid.

As an aside, it is good practice to give your controls meaningful names: 'Text58' means nothing and is difficult to maintain.

Rename the TextBoxes to your own variable name and then you can reference them. Doesn't make much sense, but it works.
