Access query that adds two columns where one is sometimes a null

I have this query:

Expr1: [TABLE]![COL1]+[TABLE]![COL2]

it's not working because sometimes either column can be a null, in that case I want it to treat the null like a 0 and add them anyways. Can I modify the query to do this?

Thanks!

Use the NZ function:

Expr1: NZ([TABLE]![COL1],0)+NZ([TABLE]![COL2] ,0)
