# Can I Do an IF Statement In an Access Query?

Posted on 2013-10-23

I have attached an excel spreadsheet with current and expected results
using an IF statement in a Query in Microsoft Access 2007. I cannot figure out how to do what I think is a simple If statement in Access.
The A column table in Access has numeric and "blank" values in the rows.
In another access B column I would like to fill in the blank rows with the number zero and have any non-blank row in Column A fill in automatically. Is there a simple formula to do this?
Below is the formula I am trying to put together. Currently this formula just fills in the blank rows with zeros but DOES NOT fill in the other numbers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
Rick

Expr1: IIf([Total Of Ext-Price6]," ",0,IIf([Total Of Ext-Price6],>0=[Total Of Ext-Price6]))
