You are missing a double quote in the Criteria string

TotQtyInsAndOuts: Nz(DSum("[QTY_ORDERED]","tblInventory", "[TRNX_TYPE] in ('I','O')"),0)

Although if you are doing this for many records, the DSUM() could make this a long running query.  You might be better off with some form of aggregate query based grouped on a specific field (either as a stand-alone or sub query) and then joining that query to this one.
