Hi,

What is the expression to set the default date of date parameter to getdate()-1. I want the SSRS report to choose the Startdate as previous date and end date as current date.

I set the default value of parameter as =Today(), which displays current date, how to set it to previous date? Any ideas what should be the expression?

Thanks
Koen Verbeeck

Try this:

=DateAdd("d",-1,Today())

For some reason the VB functions like "=Today()" would not work for the default value for a date parameter (it gave me the red angry line but would not say why it didn't like it).

I ended up making a dataset as follows and it worked fine.

select convert(date,convert(char(10),getdate(),101)) as Today

You should be able to come up with that yourself.

This is the calculation to find "yesterday":
=DateAdd("d",-1,Today())

=DateAdd("d",-1,Today())

I am assuming it would be
=DateAdd("d",+1,Today())
or
=DateAdd("d",1,Today())

which have both not worked.

In what sense?
Is an error returned?
