SSRS/ReportBuilder 3 - Can reference a textbox or tablix in an expression?

Hey guys, quick question for you...

Is there a way to reference a textbox or a tablix in an expression?

I have a Textbox with a name of ABC_Textbox -

This textbox is based on a different data source that the one I'm working with so I can't just add that textbox's formula into the expression that I'm using...

I am trying to use that textbox's value in an expression, something like: ABC_Textbox.Value --- that doesn't work, I don't know how to do it... is it possible?

Unless I missed something, you need to use the syntax ReportItems.ABC_Textbox.Value

You can get more information on this at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb934329%28v=sql.100%29.aspx

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
