I'm trying to do some conditional formatting and I want to use an enum from my datasource. What should the value look like? When I uses a string as value, it says that it cannot compare "enum" and string.

Best regards,
Michael

Hi Michael Bendtsen,

You cannot compare enum values with strings directly because there is no implicit conversion between the two types. However you can use the ToString() method in the expression to convert the enum value to its string representation. Then you can compare the two strings as usual. I have attached a small sample project with a report that demonstrates this approach.
