exclude nulls in column SSRS

exclude nulls in column SSRS

ssrs ignore filter if parameter is null
ssrs hide row if value is null

new to SSRS

I have table with column 1 is Department, and column 2 is The calculation

For example sum of the cost...

I have used the expression below to sum the cost

but I want to exclude the department that are null, but its no joy..

=Sum(IIF(Fields!ReturnOrder.Value = "1" + IsNothing(Fields!Department.Value) = 1, Fields!Cost.Value, 0))

column 1 is still showing the null department. I do not wish to show this...

I just want to have a column 1 showing the department names, that does not show the null rows.. and column 2 sum of cost where return value = 1

please help


To make your expression work the way you have it, you need to change the plus to an AND for logical operations and leave the ISNOTHING as a Boolean (without the = 1):

=Sum(IIF(Fields!ReturnOrder.Value = "1" AND NOT(IsNothing(Fields!Department.Value)), Fields!Cost.Value, 0))

I'm not sure what the ReturnOrder is for but left your condition in.

There are some values lead to null values in all columns coming from one of the tables. Basically, my question is the


The expression you are looking for is

=Sum(IIF(Fields!ReturnOrder.Value = "1" AND IsNothing(Fields!Department.Value) = False, Fields!Cost.Value, 0))

Tip: In case your value is decimal instead of 0 use Cdec(0) to avoid errors.

To avoid displaying null departments I would suggest filtering your SQL query.

You can also do it by filtering the tablix

Expression: IsNothing(Fields!Department.Value)
Type: Boolean
Operator: Equal =
Value: False

Doing so will hide Null departments and your expression can be simplified to

=Sum(IIF(Fields!ReturnOrder.Value = "1", Fields!cost.Value, 0))

Empty and Null Data Points in Charts (Report Builder), Empty and Null Data Points in Charts (Report Builder and SSRS) If the chart type is a linear chart type (bar, column, scatter, line, area, range),  I can't do a WHERE NextProductID IS NULL because the column is calculated with the LEAD funciton. Example code: SELECT BusinessEntityID, ProductID, LEAD(ProductID) OVER(PARTITION BY BusinessEntityID ORDER BY BusinessEntityID) AS NextProductID FROM Purchasing.ProductVendor ORDER BY BusinessEntityID, ProductID


The best way is to alter your query:

SELECT *
FROM [YourTable]
WHERE [Department] IS NOT NULL;

You can also select the details row, click the Properties tab, and enter a formula in the "Hidden" property

=IIF(IsNothing(Fields!Department.value), True, False)

This says, "if department is null, hide this row, otherwise show it". The first method is better because less data is returned to your report. The second method requires that all rows are returned, and the report has to sort through which ones to show.

Select the detail row (click the three lines), select the Properties tab, and replace "False" with that formula:

Hiding Null value rows – SQLServerCentral, Hiding Null value rows – Learn more on the SQLServerCentral forums. is SSRS where i can specify if the field value is null then hide the row? Thanks for you reply, but what do you mean by exclude it from the data set. This is probably not the ideal query to retrieve rows containing specified values within a column, but the solution below effectively returns the values specified in a new column-alias but includes NULL values. How would the below query be constructed to exclude rows containing NULL values within the column alias?


Hiding a Blank Row in a SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS , I found a lot of documentation on how to hide a text box, or even a row based a condition or calculation, such as blank, zero or null values. but I want to exclude the department that are null, but its no joy.. =Sum(IIF(Fields!ReturnOrder.Value = "1" + IsNothing(Fields!Department.Value) = 1, Fields!Cost.Value, 0)) column 1 is still showing the null department.


Testing for NULLS in a Dataset Filter, The problem with comparing Null values in an expression has little to do SSAS Design, Power Pivot, Power BI, SSRS Advanced Design, Power BI, To exclude the row, return a value that won't match when compared with  The resultset will either consist of zero rows (column a has a non-NULL value) or one row (column a has only the NULL value). FWIW this code is Standard SQL-92. Here is a fast (and ugly) stored proc that takes the name of the table and print (or drop if you want it to) the fields that are full of nulls.


[SSRS] Best method to exclude null/nothing : SQL, [SSRS] Best method to exclude null/nothing The table is based on an XML data dump where each row of the XML file is inserted into the table and a key  A field with a NULL value is a field with no value. If a field in a table is optional, it is possible to insert a new record or update a record without adding a value to this field. Then, the field will be saved with a NULL value. Note: A NULL value is different from a zero value or a field that contains spaces.
