I had a requirement to add some spacing after a prefix of a textbox to align with a row below it and make the report more visually appealing. I tried the space() function within my expression, and that didn't work.

Here's what I did to resolve our scenario:

1. Left Double click the textbox that will hold this value/expression
2. Right click the textbox area and select "Create Placeholder" from the flyout menu option
3. In the "Placeholder Properties" pop-up modal, make sure to select
"HTML - Interpret HTML tags as styles" when in the "General" section

4. When creating the expression, I used the following for my padding:
=iif(Fields!datatype.Value="Issues", "Issue:"
& " " , "") & Fields!comment.Value

In my scenario, if the type was "Issues", then I needed to put:
a prefix of "Issue:" + spacing + my comment field

I had a request to create an autonumbering column in SharePoint 2010 for document numbering, and here is how we got the solution to work. I will use elementary school documents as an example.

The user could select one of up to 15 different school subjects when requesting a new document number, and the autonumber should stay in sync with the school there is no loss in the next available number for that particular school subject.

This is why I can't simply use the ID column that's associated with every list and append that to the eventual variable in a workflow.
