Description


SSMS actually color-codes key words and functions and will mark an errored calculation as #Error (and give you a message when you hover), whereas ReportBuilder is flat black text and just shows "Null".

Additionally the documentation for the ReportBuilder designer shows that there should be color:

Hello,
Thank you for submitting this feedback. After carefully evaluating all of the bugs in our pipeline, we are closing bugs that we will not fix in the current or future versions of SQL Server. The reasons for closing these bugs are following:
1.     The fix is risky to implement in the current version of the product (service packs)
2.     Scenarios reported in the bug are not common enough
3.     A viable workaround is available
Thanks again for reporting the product issue and continued support in improving our product.
