Assuming that you want to return records where the difference between A and B is greater than 10, this will do it:

SELECT Nz([FieldB])-Nz([FieldA]) AS FieldDiff, tblTestNos.FieldA, tblTestNos.FieldB
FROM tblTestNos
WHERE (((Nz([FieldB])-Nz([FieldA]))>10));

What's the difference between those two records? Do you mean you want to show records where the DIFFERENCE between A and B is greater than 10? If so:

SELECT * FROM YourTable WHERE (FieldB - FieldA) > 10
