I need to select records based on one criteria plus a 2nd variable criteria:

A and (B or C)

Currently my sql statement is:

sql2 = "SELECT COUNT(tblJournal.ChartID) AS CountEBSCO12NoContract " & _
"FROM tblJournal " & _
"WHERE tblJournal.FY12Vendor = 'EBSCO' AND tblJournal.FY12NatContract = 'No' OR " & _
      "tblJournal.FY12Vendor = 'EBSCO' AND tblJournal.FY12NatContact IS NULL "

Set obj2 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
obj2.Open sql2, objConn


The error generated is:
     Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e10'
     [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 1.

I don't use access anymore and only sql server.  But I think you need to use isnull(tblJournal.FY12NatContact )

WHERE tblJournal.FY12Vendor = 'EBSCO' AND tblJournal.FY12NatContract = 'No' OR " & _
      "tblJournal.FY12Vendor = 'EBSCO' AND isNull(tblJournal.FY12NatContact  )

FIgured it out.  Need to have the OR on the 2nd line of the WHERE statement.
