Excel formulas to access queries

IN the attached excel file columns J, K, and L are calculated, so far you all have helped me with column J and now I am struggling to finish the FRT Met or Overdue column, the excel formula is this =IF(OR(LEFT(M5,2)="CN",LEFT(M5,2)="KN"),"Met",IF(I5<=J5,"Met","Overdue")) and what I have come up with so far in access is this :

FRT Met or Overdue:
IIf(Left([WHY_MISS],2)="CN" Or


ED]>[DUE_SCHED_DATE],DateAdd("d",3,[DATE_ESCALATED]),[DUE_SCHED_DATE])),"Met","Overdue")) the problem may be parenthesis related but I can't seem to decipher it maybe I have been looking too long.

Lastly I will need to write something in my access query for when (column "K" which is FRT Met or Overdue) scores "overdue" I would like the month only from column I which is due_cmpln_date to populate.

If you open the snipet file what I need is the formulas in columns K and L coded into an access query.  The headers are FRT Met or Overdue and Overdue Closed in Month, you will notice overdue closed in month has no formula as currently it is a manual field but I would like it to populate with the "Month" value in column "I" only when column "K" scores overdue.
