I have a report in Access 2007 that I am using a SUM function for a Field called Benefit.  The report includes a field called EXEMPT where the value is either 1 or 0  I am trying to create a SUM total of all the BENEFIT numbers where the EXEMPT is <> 1

I know this is not right, but here is the logic:

=FormatCurrency(Sum([BENEFIT])) where EXEMPT <> 1
