IIF Statement syntax?
I have a timesheet template that allows a user to enter their Time In, Time out for Lunch, Time back In, Time Out for the day, then calculates the time differences to give total number of hours worked.
I am trying to make it so that if the total time for the day is Negative, it assigns zero as the default. Here is the statement that I tried
Can anyone give me some help on what I've done wrong? I just get #NAME in the box

Hello. Doing a report that uses an IIF in a textbox that is text. If the
IIF is false I would like the text (mainly 1 or 2 words) not to be
underlined. How do I end the IIF so the text is not underlined?
I am not sure how you mean, but if you want this underlined based on the
true or false then use the properties box and choose the text decoration
item and write an expression in there.

The "100" answer will work, but the "between" will not query anything.

into the database who do not have ID numbers. I would like to use IDs for
those who have them, and then have the database randomly or sequentially

be the best way to do this? And if it is, how would I go about doing it?

Try something like this:

That avoids the division by zero error.

I'm looking for a way to restate this: =IIf([Fall]="1","Yes","No")
so that if ANY listing for Fall is 1, then it will return a "Yes" value. Is
there a better way to do this? It's being used in a report based off a query.

easier/eliminate this function, but the person with the knowledge isn't

That sort of begs the question "Why have a default value if you don't want

To remove the unwanted 0s, you can write an Update query:

Does the IIf function work differently in queries from the way it works in
For example, this works in a query:
(I can hid the last name "Smith" in the lastName field.)
However, I cannot use the same IIf as a control source in a report. It
generates a circular reference error message.
(If the name is not "Smith", then print it.)
Is this just how IIf works?
