I assume this is in a query, and you are trying to set the value of the "Timeform" field to either 1 or zero. But from your description, you want it to be a 1 if [TimeFormCode] = "-", but your code is using wildcards, which implies that you want if [TimeFormCode] contains a dash, which is it?

If #1, then try:

Timeform: IIF([TIMEFORMCODE] = "-", 1, 0)

If #2, then try:

Timeform: IIF(instr([TIMEFORMCODE], "-") > 0 , 1, 0)
