Hello ~

I'd like to incorporate the following IIf statement into a query criteria:

IIf([forms]![frmMain]![ckConsent]=1,-1)

Implied IF the control value is NOT 1, display all records.
Alternatively, IF the control value is NOT 1, display records w/ -1 or 0 in the field.

Tried:
IF the control value is NOT 1, no records are displayed - as written
IIf([forms]![frmMain]![ckConsent]=1,-1, -1 Or 0)
Does not work.

I appreciate your ideas.

If I understand what you're trying to do the following in the critera I think will render the result you're after...

<> IIf([forms]![frmMain]![ckConsent],0, 1)

If chkConcent is true then all values with true will be displayed...
If chkConcent is false than all values true and false will be displayed because a boolean field will only contain -1 and  0 for values thus both are <> (not equal to) 1.  In the inverse condition we are saying not equal to 0 which would leave us with only values that are -1.

Cee Wah!  That's exactly it.

Extra thanks for lightning fast response time and the mind reading. (I think I did not articulate that question very well.)

Interesting the way that works.

Thank you, Jacob
