Field = blank in Access form

This should be so simple but yet I can't get an if then statement to work in vba for an access form. I created a button called "Correct" and when it is clicked I need code to run through the data in the split form to determine if it is correct or not. I don't have an issue if it is correct but when the field is blank the code automatically returns "incorrect" unless I write the code backwards. Like
If field1 <> "" then
field2 = "Incorrect"
else
field2 = "Correct"
end if

But I want to be able to also check numerous other answers in the field so I would like something like:

If field1 = "" or field1 = "12/31/2010" then
field2 = "Correct"
else
field2 = "Incorrect"
end if

Thank you

Your question isn't that clear.

Are you indicating that blank is correct sometimes?

What would be incorrect?

I'm sorry. If it is blank I do want the connecting field to return "correct
This is my exact code for command "Correct"

Do While Me.MemberID <> ""
If Me.MemberID = "1411" Then
    If Me.HealthGuidance = "12/31/2010" Or Me.HealthGuidance = "" Then
        Me.NUM3 = "Correct"
    Else
        Me.NUM3 = "Incorrect"
    End If
End If
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext
Loop

Have you tried

If IsNull() or IsEmpty() instead of =""
