Hi All I need your advice,

1) I have a dynamic string which changes each time.

for example today the string will be "ItemA,ItemB,ItemC" and tomorrow it will be "itemA,ItemB" only.

2) I have an SSRS report which has 3 columns

3) I want to split this string "ItemA,ItemB,ItemC" and want to show splitted substrings in these 3 columns of ssrs table. the Delimiter is "," (comma)

4) I had used

=Split("ItemA,ItemB,ItemC",",").GetValue(0) in the first column of the report

=Split("ItemA,ItemB,ItemC",",").GetValue(1) in the second column of the report

=Split("ItemA,ItemB,ItemC",",").GetValue(2) in the third column of the report

5) everything works fine until my string is "ItemA,ItemB,ItemC" ,


BUT WHEN MY STRING CHANGES TO "ItemA,ItemB", then I am seeing "#Error" in the third column.

I understood the error, for

=Split("ItemA,ItemB,ItemC",",").GetValue(2) we dont have any value because the string now has only 2 values after applying split function



Is there any way i can avoid #Error in the third column.

NOTE: I have to compulsorily use 3 columns in the ssrs report.

I had tried using =Replace(Split("ItemA,ItemB",",").GetValue(2),"#Error","NULL") in the third column but that also wont worked.



Appreciate Your Help,

Raj Vardhan

Hi,

You could write a function using the embedded code option in SSRS. This would enable you to use better string manipulation functions and error handling in VB.

What if you cheated and appended a few extra commas to your string so that it looked like:

"ItemA,ItemB,,,", or "ItemA,,,"

That way your split function would return a blank string.
