Expressions and calculations not working in report RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am creating a c# Winforms Application, using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

    Within this project I created a rdlc report, which is used in a report viewer.

    I've added a dataset, and when the program is ran, the fields display fine. The fields display as [Field1] or [Firstname] in design view, and show their actual value when the program has ran.

    I have added a table into the report which showes item description, quantity and price. I want to find the total of the price of the items. I have tried entering in the textbox =Sum(itemunitprice) or =Sum(fields!itemunitprice.value), and when the program has ran it doesn’t calculate the total, just displays =Sum(fields!itemunitprice.value).

    I'm not sure if this information is useful, but when I first made the report I tried to concatenate the FirstName field with the Surname field, so I tried =[Firstname] & " " & [Surname]. Once again when the program ran it displayed =[Firstname] & " " & [Surname]. When I replaced the textbox text with [Firstname] [Surname] the report displayed the data as it should.

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
