I have an IIf statement that I am trying to do.  My expression that I am trying to do is if the DED Code is equal to TXFE or

IIf((AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or (AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN'),[LimitTaxableWages] = 28900,0) as LimitTaxableWages

I get a syntax error in my SQL statement and LimitTaxableWages is a new field I am trying to create in this query.  Please let me know.  Thanks!

There is a bracket missing, and the value should be used as follow (if I understand what you want to do - maybe I did not get it at all):

IIf((AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or (AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN'),[LimitTaxableWages], 28900)) as LimitTaxableWages

I have a syntax error with a comma somewhere.  Here is my complete query with your expression at the bottom:

SELECT AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Record Type], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Company, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Employee, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Process level], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Dept, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check ID], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Pay Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[TR-Date], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check Date], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Hours, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Wage-Amt], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Ded-Amt], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Excess, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Job Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Work State], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Ded End Date], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Case Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[File Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.EDM, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Expr4, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages],
IIf((AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or (AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN'),[LimitTaxableWages], 28900)) as LimitTaxableWages
FROM AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages;

What I really want it to do is have an iff statement like the following:

If the DED Code = TXFE or TXUN then LimitTaxableWages = 28900
If the DED Code = TXSC or TXSE then LimitTaxableWages = 106800

Please help me figure this expression out.  Thank you!

I changed [LimitTaxableWages] to [Taxable-Wages] in the IIf. Don't know if this is right, but the new name should different to the original and I assume that this is the field you want to use. Please check if this is what you want to get.

SELECT AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Record Type], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Company, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Employee,
AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Process level], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Dept,
AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check ID], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Pay Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[TR-Date],
AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check Date], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Hours,
AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Wage-Amt], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Ded-Amt],
AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Excess, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Job Code], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Work State], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Ded End Date], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Check Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Case Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[File Number], AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.EDM, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.Expr4, AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages],
IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN',
       [Taxable-Wages], 28900 ) as LimitTaxableWages
FROM AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages;

IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN', 28900,
       IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXSC' or
              AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXSE', 106800,
             [Taxable-Wages] )) as LimitTaxableWages

Please check if [Taxable-Wages] is what you want to have if nothing of the DED Codes match.

OK, so how do you do a check to see if there is anything in a record?  

What I am trying to do is if there is nothing in the AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages] record column, I want to insert into the SumOfTaxableWages whatever is in the AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages] colunn.  How would I do an iif statement doing that?  Does that make sense?  Thank you very much on your help so far.

Depending on your underlaying query "AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages" the value for [SumOfTaxable Wages] could be NULL, 0 or <>0. I assume that the  last two gives you valid information back, so I check only with "IsNull" in the IIf-Statement. The following return the sum, if not NULL:

IIf ( IsNull(AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages]),
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages],
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages] )

This returns the sum if <>0 and not NULL:

IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages]<>0,
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages],
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages] )

So, if there is something in [SumOfTaxable Wages] use that, other wise use [taxable-wages]

ie IIf ( Nz(AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages],0) <> 0
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[SumOfTaxable Wages],
       AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[Taxable-Wages] )

what does that have to do with :

If the DED Code = TXFE or TXUN then LimitTaxableWages = 28900, or, If the DED Code = TXSC or TXSE then LimitTaxableWages = 106800

ie IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXFE' or  AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXUN', 28900,
       IIf ( AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXSC' or AllEmployeeSumoftaxablewages.[DED Code] = 'TXSE', 106800,
             0)) as LimitTaxableWages






or are they two seperate questions ?
