I have a query with a field named "TotJobHours".  This field is a calculation field made up by...
TotJobHours: [TotSomeHours]+[TotSomeMoreHours]+[TotEvenMoreHours]

But I need another query with a field that is something like...
RemainingJobHours: [TotSomeHours] where SomeHoursComplete = False +[TotSomeMoreHours] where SomeMoreHoursComplete = False + [TotEvenMoreHours] where EvenMoreHoursComplete = False
but this syntax is not correct.  Can someone provide guidance here?

(all on one line)

RemainingJobHours:
IF(SomeHoursComplete, 0, [TotSomeHours])
+IF(SomeMoreHoursComplete, 0, [TotSomeMoreHours])
+IF(EvenMoreHoursComplete, 0, [TotEvenMoreHours])
0

I meant this: (all on one line)

RemainingJobHours:
IIF(SomeHoursComplete, 0, [TotSomeHours])
+IIF(SomeMoreHoursComplete, 0, [TotSomeMoreHours])
+IIF(EvenMoreHoursComplete, 0, [TotEvenMoreHours])
