I have the following IF stmt:

if recordset1!samplevalue = null then
  msgbox "true"
else
  msgbox "false"
end if

The value of recordset1!samplevalue is NULL but the message "true" is skipped over and "false" is printed instead.  I've also tried using "if recordset1!samplevalue is null" but wrong answer pops up.
