The data type does not match the map matching field data type RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got below error when trying to display state name on SSRS map item. The field for state name is varchar The expression that specifies binding field StateName for layer 'polygonLayer1' in the map 'map' is not valid. The data type does not match the map matching field data type Could varchar be the proble? Do I have to change the type to nvarchar? Thanks

  • When you set up the binding in the map wizard, the data types likely do need to match.  This sounds like the error you are seeing.
