I have a table called Accounts. The table has two fields Accounts and Amounts. I am creating a query and need an expression that pulls amounts if the account is not account 1 or 5. Below is a sample of what I need. How do I write the expression?

Accounts      Amounts            Query Result wanted
1      100            0
2      200            200
3      300            300
4      400            400
5      500            0

If you ONLY want those records:

SELECT  Account , Amount
FROM YourTable
WHERE Account <> 1 and Account <> 5

Open in new window


If you need to display 0 for those amounts:


SELECT  Account , Amount, IIF(Account= 1 OR Account = 5, 0, Amount) AS NewAmount
FROM YourTable

Open in new window

Can you provide the formula to enter the above in an expression since I will need to do more with this? For Example: Xpression: IIF([Account_tbl]![Account]?????.

That's part of the SQL statement....

The expression is:

IIF(Account= 1 OR Account = 5, 0, Amount)

Open in new window



You can assign it a column name like this:

NewAmount: IIF(Account= 1 OR Account = 5, 0, Amount)

Open in new window



(You can toggle between SQL view and Design  view to see it written both ways)
