ok, I'm totally lost when it comes to programming access. So
   here's what seems so simple but doesn't work for me.  (Access 97): Let's keep it
   simple.  I have 3 fields on a form (from a table). The fields are "subtotal", "tax", and
   "total".  The "tax" field is a check box (yes/no). My expression in the "total" field
   states:  Iff([tax]="yes",[total]=(.07*[subtotal]),
   [total]=[subtotal])
I'm getting to old for this.  Basic was easy for me, this is not.

I am no expert by any stretch, but I don't think you want to use an immediate If statement in your example, I would think that you would use an If then statement. Instead of using the expression builder, try using the code builder.

If([Tax]="yes", then
   [Total]= 0.07*[Subtotal]

I think this might work for you.

Mabe this code will help you out.
If you have any problems please let me know about it!

Private Sub Tax_Click()
  If Tax = -1 Then             'Tax is checked
    Total =  0.07*[subtotal]
  Else
    Total = Subtotal
  End If
End Sub

Try it like this  IIF([tax],[total]=(1.07*[subtotal]),[total]=[subtotal])

You don't need the [total]= part. Try this:

IIf([tax],(1.07*[subtotal]),[subtotal])
