Nested IF statement visual studio 2005

In the properties on a table column I need the column to print if I have a specific department.

If the department is "parts","service",or "special" I don't want it to print.

Something like

=IIF(Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value = "Parts",true,IIF (Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value = "service",true,(
 IIF Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value = "Special",true,false))

If I get the syntax correct (no red line) then I get some kind of error when I execute.

The expression is in a table column under the visibility property.

: IIf([Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="Parts",True,IIf([Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="service",True,IIf([Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="Special",True,False)))

IIf(([Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="Parts" Or [Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="service" Or [Fields]![DEPT_NAME].[Value]="Special");True;False)

The syntax was different, it work with this:

=IIf((Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value="Service" Or Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value="Deli" OR
 OR Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value="Parts"
  OR Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value="power"
  OR Fields!DEPT_NAME.Value="holidays"),True,False)
