How Do I Create a Banded Report with Grouped Tables

During a recent training course a delegate asked "How do I create a banded report in a grouped table?"

If one creates a banded report in a Tablix using the usual formula everything is fine, however if there is a grouping in that table, things tend to get a little bit interesting!


To get around this one can apply this formula to the details row od the Tablix:

=IIF(RunningValue(Fields!Category.Value,CountDistinctNothingMOD 2 = 1, "Colour1""Colour2")
