    Hi Syed Hussain,

    First let us clarify that Telerik Reporting does not support scheduling of reports and emailing them out of the box i.e. the developer would have to do this with code. With that said, the Embedded Expressions feature serves similar purpose as the MS Word mail merge.

    All the best,

    Using the Embedded Expressions feature, how would you do conditional formatting? For example if I have a current balance field, I may want it to be RED if it has a negative value or Black if positive. I may want to hide some report output based on some data condition.

    Hello Ray,

    It is not possible to do conditional formatting with the Embedded Expressions feature.

    Alternatively, you can set the reporting item appearance from its ConditionalFormatting property. I refer you to the Conditional Formatting article, where you can read how to conditionally change layout properties of the report items.

    I have attached also a simple example (needs to be unzipped), where I have implemented the requested example features, i.e. the Balance Text Color is RED for negative balance, BLACK for positive balance, and the Balance is NOT VISIBLE when zero.
