hi experts, i am having an issue with using the IIF statement to an access db from my vb.net application
here is my code and the error i get.
this one really has me stumped as far as i can tell my syntax is correct.
i have tried simple iif statements and they all fail on the '<=>' argument

SELECT IIf(A.ASSIGN_DT>A.EXP_DT,DateDiff('d',A.ASSIGN_DT,Now()),DateDiff('d',A.EXP_DT,Now())) AS AGE, A.CASE_ID, A.CASE_TYPE, A.INSURED, A.INS_DBA, A.ASSIGN_DT, A.EXP_DT, A.SENT_DT, A.REP_DUE_DT,
                      A.CASE_READ, A.CON_CITY, A.INS_PHONE, B.STAT_COMMENTS AS Scheduled, B.STATUS_DESC AS Description
FROM         (SELECT     dattbl_Case.CASE_ID, dattbl_Case.CASE_TYPE, dattbl_Case.INSURED, dattbl_Case.INS_DBA, dattbl_Case.ASSIGN_DT,
                                              dattbl_Case.REP_DUE_DT, dattbl_Case.EXP_DT, dattbl_Tracker.CASE_READ, dattbl_Tracker.SENT_DT, dattbl_Case.CON_CITY,
                                              dattbl_Case.INS_PHONE
                       FROM          dattbl_Case INNER JOIN
                                              dattbl_Tracker ON dattbl_Case.CASE_ID = dattbl_Tracker.CASE_ID
                       WHERE      (dattbl_Tracker.FOLDER = 'INBOX')) A LEFT OUTER JOIN
                          (SELECT     CASE_ID, STAT_CODE, STAT_COMMENTS, STAT_ID, STAT_NEXT_DT, STATUS_DESC
                            FROM          dattbl_Status
                            WHERE      (STAT_CODE = 78 OR
                                                   STAT_CODE = 79 OR
                                                   STAT_CODE = 80 OR
                                                   STAT_CODE = 81)) B ON A.CASE_ID = B.CASE_ID

Error in list of function arguments: '>' not recognized.
Unable to parse query text.

hmmm.. not too sure but

Iif will return an object, and although your statement would have worked in VB 6.0 (id dare say) .Net is strongly typed and maybe this was the casue of the problem, so..

CType(IIf(A.ASSIGN_DT>A.EXP_DT,DateDiff('d',A.ASSIGN_DT,Now()),DateDiff('d',A.EXP_DT,Now())), Date)..

May also need to do it to cType(A.ASSIGN_DT,Date)>ctype(A.EXP_DT,date)
