How to Display Blanks as Zeros in a SSRS Report

Added by November 12, 2014

Some of the cells in this SSRS matrix report are blank:

001-How-to-Display-Blanks-as-Zeros-in-a-SSRS-Report

To display zeros instead, we will use two functions:

1.

2.

 

In the design of the matrix, right-click on the textbox containing the values in question, then select Expression… to edit the expression underlying the textbox.

002-How-to-Display-Blanks-as-Zeros-in-a-SSRS-Report

Type the following expression in the Expression dialog:

003-How-to-Display-Blanks-as-Zeros-in-a-SSRS-Report

The expression says that if SUM(Fields!SubTotal.Value) is Null (the IsNothing() function that it is in returns a True if it is Null and a Fales if it isn’t), then a zero is returned by the expression; otherwise the SUM(Fields!SubTotal.Value) is used.

Click OK and preview the report again. Notice that zeros are now present in what used to be the blank cells.

Enjoy!
