I know there is probably a simple answer to the below, but I can not get this to run correctly

DstNfin: IIf([DISTANCE]<([DSTFUR]+1.01 And [DISTANCE]>([DSTFUR]-1.01)),[RWNF],0)

What I want is if Distance is between Dstfur plus or minus 1.01 to return RWNF.  If not it would reutrn 0.    For example, DISTANCE is 8 and DSTFUR is 6, would return 0.  If DISTANCE was 8 and DSTFUR is 7, would return RWNF.

Try this:

DstNfin: IIf([Distance] BETWEEN [DSTFUR] - 1.01 AND [DSTFUR] + 1.01, [RWNF],0)

Parentheses to make it clearer:

DstNfin: IIf([Distance] BETWEEN ([DSTFUR] - 1.01) AND ([DSTFUR] + 1.01), [RWNF],0)

Glad to help out.

One thing I have found helpful in getting the syntax of these logical statements is to get them out of my head and into writing (pseudocode), and working from there.

Your original post here came very close to speling out the correct syntax :)
