I'm doing a proof of concept on self-service BI with report builder for a department here at work. As a user of BIDS for a long while I'm just messing around with Report Builder to see how self-service it can actually be. I can create shared datasets and reports pretty easily, but I'm trying to create a computed field to see if I can do a 'case like' statement on some data, as is pretty common for end users. I'm using an IF statement. Pretty common. I'm getting a weird error, and my google fu has not helped me solve this problem.

My set up: 2008 R2: Cube to Report Model to Report Builder 3.0.

My simple IF statement:

Any ideas? I've tried IIF (returns error - Report Builder uses IF) I've tried ; instead of , but it doesn't like the semicolon either. I've tried much more simple formulas like ID + 1 and I get the same error. I find it odd I can find a handful of people talking about this on the net, but nobody has solved it.

I think the issue is this dataset is being created from a report model based on a cube. Possibly the cube is asking for MDX, but report builder can't convert. Same reasoning by which a cube based report model can't be edited or built using a report model project in BIDS?
