We can create Dynamic columns in both level like frame work manager level and Report level also but this is what i do:

1. first, you add a data item to the query(the query on which the report is based)
2. then you define an expression which u want to use for the dynamic column label
3. from the report page you click on the column label
4. then from properties pane look for "column label" the default would be "data item label/name" change that to "data item value"
5. in the same pane change the "data item" property to have the data item that u created for the column label.
