MAX and IIF statements Access vs SQL

I have an Access query with the following clause:

Max(IIf([dbo_AbsDrgDiagnoses]![DiagnosisSeqID]=1,[dbo_AbsDrgDiagnoses]![Diagnosis],0)) AS PrinDiag

I have translated it to SQL as:

MAX(iif(dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.DiagnosisSeqID=1,dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.Diagnosis,0)) as PrinDiag

I am getting a syntax error that "error in list of function arguaments: "=" not recognized

Do you see what could be wrong?

Thanks

Glen

According to MSDN for SQL 2012, what you have should work for the new IIF function.  But since it is not, give the CASE statement a try instead:

SELECT (CASE WHEN dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.DiagnosisSeqID = 1 THEN dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.Diagnosis ELSE 0) as PrinDiag

just for completeness, correcting the syntactial errors in mds-cos's query.
SELECT MAX(CASE WHEN dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.DiagnosisSeqID = 1 THEN dbo.AbsDrgDiagnoses.Diagnosis ELSE 0 END) as PrinDiag
