SSRS formatting a field in a table


  • I am working on SQl reporting services. And i have to format  table1 to table2 which can be found in screen shot. Basically if the values in the field Task-Name, Solution, and Date  matches for any consecutive rows then I have to concatenate the values for resource Name separated with a comma.

  • Hi Amit Kumar,

    Try like below expression in ResourceName column

    =IIF(Fields!TaskName.Value = Previous(Fields!TaskName.Value) AND 
    Fields!Solution.Value = Previous(Fields!Solution.Value) AND 
    Fields!Date.Value = Previous(Fields!Date.Value),

  • More efficient way to get this kind of result you should modify your query, that would be the more faster than doing thing in the report.

    Please share me your DML so that I can provide you the solution for that.

    A code solution is described in the above Technet wiki article. I have used this extensively with great success.

    I think that Sathya's suggestion will still get you the multiple rows. it is just that subsequent rows with those 3 values identical will include 2 resource names. So given your example, you would still get 4 rows but the 4th row would have the resource names for both row 3 and 4 concatenated by a comma. Should also note that if there was a 5th row, also task 3, Sol 3, Date 3, the 3rd row would show "resource 3", the 4th would show "Resource 4,Resource 3", and the 5th would show "Resource 5,Resource 4".
