MS Access Query Sum Total IIF criteria IsNull Help Please

I have a query where I have several Product Locations and I have Product Quantity Count

I am trying to get a total count of a product when it is found in multiple locations. I have had success with that part.

But if there is 0 product available it shows in the query blank but I want it to show 0 as in ZERO!

Here is my SQL for the original Query:
SELECT Products.ProductID, Sum(ProdLocations.QtyLoc) AS SumOfQtyLoc
FROM Products LEFT JOIN ProdLocations ON Products.ProductID = ProdLocations.ProductID
GROUP BY Products.ProductID;

Open in new window


and here is what I tried puting in the criteria for QtyLoc.ProdLocations Sum. This one says wrong number of Arguments:
IIf(IsNull([SumOfQtyLoc],"0", [SumOfQtyLoc])

Open in new window


and this one says Data Type Mismatch:
IIf(IsNull("SumOfQtyLoc"),"0","SumOfQtyLoc")

Open in new window


ProductID = Integer
SumOfQtyLoc = Integer
QtyLoc = Integer

Thanks!

zero is a number -- don't use delimiters

IIf(IsNull([SumOfQtyLoc]), 0, [SumOfQtyLoc])

or try this in the original Query:
Sum( iif (isNull( ProdLocations.ProductID), 0,  nz(ProdLocations.QtyLoc,0) ) ) AS SumOfQtyLoc

try this query
SELECT Products.ProductID, Sum(Nz(ProdLocations.QtyLoc,0)) AS SumOfQtyLoc
FROM Products LEFT JOIN ProdLocations ON Products.ProductID = ProdLocations.ProductID
GROUP BY Products.ProductID;

btw:
>"ProductID = Integer"

ProductID should be a Long Integer ... otherwise you will be limited to 32K

Alright Patrick Mathews that hit the spot. Thanks Rey and Crystal also for the help.  And Crystal ProductID is a Long Integer sorry.

you're welcome

btw, what Patrick gave you will work as long as every ProductID is in the ProdLocations table.  If there may be even one that is not, however, you should use what I gave you for the original Query

(hi Patrick ! missing you at the Summits. You're pretty good with Access ... don't say that about too many Excel experts ... and Rey, missing you too!)
