Hi Please find the attached snapshot for SSRS Custom Number format issue.

I am using as Number format :- #,##0.00%;(#,##0.00%)
Font Format :- IIF(ReportItems!txtBox4.Value < 0 "Red" , "Black")

But the result is coming with 0.00% as 3 type Black, Red(Without bracket) and Red(with bracket)

Can you please let me know how #,##0.00%;(#,##0.00%) work ?

The red within a bracket is negative, so that one is correct.
The 0.00% without bracket is maybe slightly below zero, but it is rounded to zero by SSRS?

for testing, why not increase the decimal places in your format string to see what numbers you're dealing with (and therefore why you're getting the styles applied). alternatively, just add another column to show the true numbers and remove it afterwards. Saves you from guessing...

In the Color property of your text box, not in the Format property.

Please add your expression to the Color property of the text box, something like this

=IIF(ReportItems!Textbox15.Value < .05, "Red", "Blue")
