And here's an excerpt from the article:

Consider below sample code is my dataset query:

DECLARE @UnitsOfMeasurement ``TABLE (Measurement ``VARCHAR`` (50),Units ``VARCHAR`` (20))

INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement ``SELECT'Area'``,``'m2'

INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement ``SELECT'Volume'``,``'m3'

INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement ``SELECT'Luminance'``,``'cd/m2'

INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement ``SELECT'Time'``,``'s'

INSERT @UnitsOfMeasurement ``SELECT'Electric current'``,``'A'

SELECT * ``FROM@UnitsOfMeasurement

I have added single column on the report as shown in below screenshot:
The expression for the UnitsOfMeasurement column is as follows:

= Fields!Measurement.Value + ``" - "+ Fields!Units.Value
