I am getting a error with the following make table query,

BaseCost: IIf([Weight]<100,[Cost]),IIf([Weight]>100,[Cost]*[Weight])

Error: "contains invalid syntax or you need to enclose your text data in quotes"

If i try the first part only it works, BaseCost: IIf([Weight]<100,[Cost])

You have an unneeded  ) after [Cost].

I don't think the 2nd IIf is needed, so try this.

BaseCost: IIf([Weight]<100,[Cost],[Cost]*[Weight])
