Use this:

Trim(IIF(UserAddress1 IS NULL, "", UserAddress2))

You basically have to put back the NULL's :)

You would update table with this:
IIF(TRIM([UserAddress1])="", NULL, TRIM([UserAddress2]))

NULLs should stay NULL.
Empty strings ("") will now become NULL.
Other text will remain same unless had extra spaces, it will be trimmed.

Since you DON'T want the double quotation marks, you will have to check for that and eliminate it.  There is no point in checking for NULL just to replace with NULL.

Oh wait, I see now UserAddress1 is a different field than UserAddress2.  Thought they were the same.  That should be fine, although do you know for sure you don't already have "" in some of the UserAddress1 data.

If you do then...
(what this does is makes NULLs, "", and " " all equal NULL)
IIF(TRIM(NZ([UserAddress1], ""))="", NULL, TRIM([UserAddress2]))
