Experts, I have been having troubles with these queries.  I dont know what I am doing wrong.  It is quite simple but something seems to not be working.

If you look at the pared down db.
Open the query

It shows 2 records that are NOT IN tblLetterOfCredit on LCNo and L/C Ref
However, both of those records are in tblLetterOfCredit.
The only difference between them is a "-" dash but the function (StrippedChar) is suppose to remove the "-" and compare but the query still shows those 2 records as NOT IN tblLetterOfCredit.

What is happening?  These queries are about to drive me nuts because I think I understand what is happening but then what I learned goes out the window (as in this example).  

Please open the pared down db.  There is probably a simple answer to this that I cant see.
