IF Statement

Hello, I am trying to get my syntax right in this report textbox equation.  Can someone help get the commas and/or paranthesis right.  My goal is to make sure that I'm not trying to subtract or divide with zero.  Thanks.

Current Script Blowing Up:

=sum(iif([ps1_bkfst_food] <> 0,([ps1_bkfst_food]-[ps13_bkfst_food])/[ps1_bkfst_food]),0))

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How about this:

=sum(IIf([ps1_bkfst_food] <> 0, ([ps1_bkfst_food] - [ps13_bkfst_food]) / [ps1_bkfst_food]), 0)

And maybe this:

=IIf([ps1_bkfst_food] = 0, , 0, sum(([ps1_bkfst_food] - [ps13_bkfst_food]) / [ps1_bkfst_food]))
