Filter Equation Examples (Report Builder 3.0 and SSRS)

To create a filter, you must specify one or more filter equations. A filter equation includes an expression, a data type, an operator, and a value. This topic provides examples of commonly used filters.

NoteNote

You can create and modify report definitions (.rdl) in Report Builder 3.0 and in Report Designer in Business Intelligence Development Studio. Each authoring environment provides different ways to create, open, and save reports and related items. For more information, see Designing Reports in Report Designer and Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS) on the Web at microsoft.com.

The following table shows examples of filter equations that use different data types and different operators. The scope for the comparison is determined by report item for which a filter is defined. For example, for a filter defined on a dataset, TOP % 10 is the top 10 percent of values in the dataset; for a filter defined on a group, TOP % 10 is the top 10 percent of values in the group.
