Convert Sum(IIf statement) to T-SQL

I have an Access SQL query I'd like to convert to a stored procedure in SQL Server 7.  I'm pretty sure it requires a case when statement, but I'm stuck!

How can I translate this statement to t-sql?

Sum(IIf(IsNull(table.field),1,0)) as SumOfEmptyField

Thanks much!

Sorry to steal the thunder but here you go

Sum(CASE WHEN table.field IS NULL THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)
create a view , which has the case statement, and then a stored procedute which uses this view in stead of the table

my main problem is wording the case statement.
Can you give a small example?
