Experts, I have a table with a field named [Completed].  This table is an import from Excel.  The field value is either Yes, No or "".    If [Completed] is null or "" then the return should be "No".  

What do you see as wrong in the below statement?  I seem to always get "Yes" for any value in  [Completed] whether it is Yes or "No" or ""

Completed_Group: IIf(Nz([Completed],""=""),"No","Yes")

Try
IIf(Nz([Completed], """"), "No", "Yes")

You were trying to set to "No" any thing that was "=". Not sure where you got = from?

this should work:
Completed_Group: IIf(Nz([Completed]=""),"No",[Completed])
