In an SSRS 2008 existing report, I wouuld like a particular textbox to look like the following when there is data:


Checking: $57.35

In the same textbox when there is no amount, the textbox would look like the following:

Checking: $0.00

The following iif statement gets the dollar amount want to display:

=IIF(Fields!PaymentType.Value="Checking", sum(cdec(Fields!TransactionAmount.Value)),0)

However I would like to know how to write an iif statement that would include the wording

"Checking: " with the dollar amont that needs to be displayed.

I have tried concatentations that I can think of, but when the report runs, I get the #error in the location
I would like to see the wording "Checking:' with the dollar amount.

Thus can you show me an expression that would solve my problem?

You should convert the number to a string and then concatenate. e.g.

="Checking: $" & Cstr(
   IIF(Fields!PaymentType.Value="Checking", sum(cdec(Fields!TransactionAmount.Value)),0)
)
