Please help with troubleshooting my expression.

I have been asked to write the following statement and am having syntax problems:

The first segement below is my instruction and the second is what I have entered in the expression builder.  
[over60]
If debits(90)>=BAL
Then 	If (BAL-Over30)>0
                     then Over60=(BAL-Over30)
                     else Over60=0
Else over60=(Debits(90)-over30)
Endif
 
 
60To90DayDebits:Sum(IIf([Query1]![SumOf90To120DayDebits]>=[Dbo_Accounts!Balance], IIf([Dbo_Accounts!Balance]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits]>0, [Dbo_Accounts!Balance] - [Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits]), 0),[Query1]![SumOf60To90DayDebits]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits]))

test this

60To90DayDebits:Sum(IIf([Query1]![SumOf90To120DayDebits]<[Dbo_Accounts!Balance], [Query1]![SumOf60To90DayDebits]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits],IIf([Query1]![SumOf90To120DayDebits]>=[Dbo_Accounts!Balance] And [Dbo_Accounts!Balance]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits]>0, [Dbo_Accounts!Balance] - [Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits], 0)))


or this shorter version

60To90DayDebits:Sum(IIf([Query1]![SumOf90To120DayDebits]<[Dbo_Accounts!Balance], [Query1]![SumOf60To90DayDebits]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits],IIf([Dbo_Accounts!Balance]-[Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits]>0, [Dbo_Accounts!Balance] - [Query1]![SumOf30To60DayDebits], 0)))
