I have an ADP database that when a value is coming up blank the IIF statement does not work correctly.  For example:

Control Source
=IIF([Rate]="",0[Rate])
 The textbox is still blank.  Any idea?

I would use the Nz function.  I think this is what you are trying to do:
Me![Rate].Control Source = Nz(Me.[Rate],0)

PsychoDazey, Just put the control source property:
=Nz(Me.[Rate],0)

PsychoDazey ,
I was referring to your comment, which is now accepted answer, to remove: Me![Rate].Control Source before the equal sign. :)
