Hello,

I'm trying to add the following to an unbound text box on a report, but I'm getting the error:

"The expression you entered contains invalid syntax. You may have entered an operand without an operator."


=iif([tprPractitioner]="Person 1","2644004F", iif([trpPratitioner]=
Person 2","3573683H",""))

Can you see what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks
