Ummm...how does that fix the problem??? You *STILL* end up doing a divide by zero if *ALL* parts of *ALL* IIF's are evaluated.
I think you just made a typo. I think you meant to write:
Fields!Ticket_Sales.Value / iif(Fields!Ticket_Budget.Value=0,1,Fields!Ticket_Budget.Value)
That way, if the value *IS* zero, you change it to 1 so no "divisiion by zero". But then the prior IIF ends up ignoring the division quotient, anyway, so the divide by 1 has no impact.
You *COULD* also do
= ( Fields!Ticket_Sales.Value / iif(Fields!Ticket_Budget.Value=0,1E100,Fields!Ticket_Budget.Value) )
So that the quotient becomes a really tiny number and, when displayed, will show as zero. Don't do this if you will use the result in any further calculation, but it should work for display-only purposes.
