I keep getting a "missing operator" error. What am i doing wrong?

iif(t2.MABD_Compliance is null,"Missing Data",((iif(t2.TransitMode="CP" or t2.TransitMode="LTL") and (dateadd("d",-(IIf(t2.TransitMode="TL" Or t2.TransitMode="IM", datediff("d",t2.Carrier_Pickup_Date,(dateadd("d",-2,t2.MABD))),datediff("d",t2.[Ship-On_Date],(dateadd("d",-2,t2.MABD))))), t2.MABD) < (dateadd("d",2,t2.Create_Date))) or iif(t2.TransitMode="TL" or t2.TransitMode="IM") and       (datediff("d",t2.Carrier_Pickup_Date,t2.MABD) < (IIf(t2.TransitMode="TL" Or t2.TransitMode="IM", datediff("d",t2.Carrier_Pickup_Date,(dateadd("d",-2,t2.MABD))),datediff("d",t2.[Ship-On_Date],(dateadd("d",-2,t2.MABD)))))),"inaccurateLT","ok")) AS Root_Cause

"What am i doing wrong?"

In my view, creating something that is un-maintainable.  Best of luck!!

It is time to move this logic into a function. Have you written VBA functions before? They will let you:
 - use whitespace to organize the decision tree
 - add comments to document what is going on
 - debug code line by line, rather than all or nothing, like the query editor
 - reuse tested pieces of code
 - improve readibility tremendously
