"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Or alternatively, use Nz([SumOfQTY_ORDERED],"")

But don't give me points for this answer please - Rey was here before me.

I don't think you need ANY of the hard brackets, as you are not using a field with a space or other "illegal" character. It might clear it all up.

If this is SQL, you should use:

    IIf([SumOfQTY_ORDERED] Is Null,0,[SumOfQTY_ORDERED])

If VBA, then:

    Nz([SumOfQTY_ORDERED], 0)

No points please.

As indicated, removing all of the [ and ] brackets should solve your problem, but I agree with Phillip, I would recommend using the NZ function

Qty On Hand: NZ([SumOfQTY_ORDERED],0)
