on May 30, 2021 11:43 PM


I have a query on how to calculated column specific value on RDLC Report.

Sample I have two Column Name Department

On Department Column I have a three value which are IT, HR and Supply

then what I want is the total of two column only which are IT and HR only.

IT and HR only as overall total in new row like the Department Column there are IT and Hr which IT has a value of 1 and Hr has a value of 2.

The supply value in Column Department has a value of 3 but I don't want to add because only IT and HR value is my need to have a total in new row display whether top or button.

Hi Vanessa,

For display count add a row below to the table in rdlc report.

1. Right click on the table, selet Insert Row -> Outside Group - Below.

2. Add TextBox in the row below the column you want to display.

After that right click in the TextBox and select Expression...

3. In expression window write the expression.

You can use IF function instead of Switch for multiple condition.

    Fields!Country.Value = "UK", 1, 
    Fields!Country.Value = "Mexico", 1

Then press Ok.

Using the below article i have binded the report and display the column count based on the expression.
