I have created the following through the "Build" function in MS Access 2010 in Query design view under the "Field" cell.  It saves fine, but when I run the query, I get "#Error" as the query result.  I have read over the formula several times and I don't see a problem with it.  I tried double quotation marks and single quotation marks and both led to the same result.  Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the formula or offer suggestions on how to trouble shoot?  Thank you!
