I've got a union query with the field [city]. Im tryping to let access return 30 when it is empty and 50 when it isn't, but for some reasons it all turns out to be 50. Am I missing sth?

Many thanks.
=IIf(IsNull([City]),"30","50")

That can only mean that City is not null. it could be a space. Try like this:
=IIf(Trim([City])="","30","50")

Touy,

Are these numbers "Strings" (text), or actual Numeric values?

Try this if they are numeric:
=IIF([City]="" OR IsNull([City]),30,50)

Also, can you state what this formula is the control source of?

Try =IIf(len(Nz([City]))<2,30,50)
