Hi All,
I have a column 'RunTime' with following format of data in it. I need to give an expression for back ground color of this column as 'RED' if the RunTime >= 2 Hrs

For my earlier reports I was using = IIF(Fields!Runtime.Value > 2,"RED","SpringGreen") and it used to work. but I guess that because the column format was integer.


Can someone please help ASAP. Need to get this done tonight.

Thanks in Advance.

Could you not format out in the data set an int based column which is used in the expression, but not shown in the report?

Is there a way that I can take only the first digit of the column and see if its >= 2 and mark it as red color in the expression?

Could you not get left 1, convert it to int, then do > 2

CInt(Left(Fields!Field.Value,1)) > 2

You would just build that into your background expression as you have done

=IIF( CInt( Left(Fields!Runtime.Value,1)) >= 2,"Red","Transparent")

Doh moment

LEFT("16",1) = 1 which doesnt match the value as that should go red, do left 2, so change it to CInt(REPLACE(LEFT(Fields!Field.Value,2)," ","")), that way if it picks "1 " or "0 " it will remove the space and do the correct comparission
