Hi

I have a form ComboBox control. In the RowSource I want to have a SQL statement that Selects the "Company" field from the "Contacts" table, but if this is blank then it selects the "First Name and "Last Name" together

Let me get this straight, from the contacts table, display company name but if that is null then display first and last name?

u can use iff

select iif(nz(Company,"")="",[First Name] & " " & [Last Name],Company) as Name


syntax is iif(condition,value if true,value if false)

nz is used to check for null string
