Hi,

Not sure where to put this...

Im working in SQL Report Builder (sorry dont know which version) and am having trouble with calculated fields.

Ive got 2 datasets - one with some tenancy information in it (DataSet1) and the other with address data in it (DataSet2)

Ive got a calculated field that ive called "DaysVoid" which is essentially one date subtracted by another.

I want to work out the total sum of all of the "DaysVoid" so have set up another calculated field which is called "TotalDaysVoid" //=sum(DaysVoid)\\ but when I run my query, I get the following error;

//The Value expression for the textrun ‘Textbox34.Paragraphs[0].TextRuns[0]’ contains an error: [BC30451] Name 'DaysVoid' is not declared.\\

Can anybody help?

Try using the following expression in textbo34:

=sum(Fields!DaysVoid)

Thanks for your help - it worked! However....

It now brings back the value (in this case 111) as a weird format;

111.00:00:00

Ive formatted the number right, and the globalization settings are en-GB... is there something I have missed?

Thanks Again

Hi.

No, it is set to Number.

Also, the answer to my first question that I said it worked - actually didnt.

Possibly try CInt(sum(Fields!DaysVoid, "dataset_name") ) - assuming daysvoid is calculated as part of the query ?

No, it isnt - I think thats what the problem is.

In my dataset, i have "Start Date" and "End Date"

DaysVoid is a calculation of "End Date" subtract "Start Date"
