I have two text fields on my access report. If the RUNSUM has a number greater than 3, then I need to have CLSHOW not visible.

I wrote this in the code, but it does not seem to be working

Private Sub IiF()
If Me.RUNSUM > 3 Then
Me.CLSHOW.Visible = False
Else
Me.CLSHOW.Visible = True
End If
End Sub

What am I doing wrong?

Where you call function? It should be in On Format event. Result will be visible only in print or print preview, not in report view.

You should be using the OnFormat event of one of the sections in your report such as the Detail section:

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
    Me.CLSHOW.Visible  = (Me.RUNSUM <= 3)
End Sub
