Trying to convert an Excel formula to Access.

I'm trying to convert an Excel formula to Access and use it as an expression in a query.  The Excel formula is:


In the Access form/subform...

J11 = txtSplits on the subform
M5 = txtSplitsBenchmark on the main form
I11 = txtNetCWT on the subform
M6 = txtDisSchd3 on the main form
K11 = txtDamage on the subform
M7 = txtDamBenchmark on the main form
M8 = txtDisSchd4 on the main form

Can someone please help convert the Excel formula in a syntax I can use for an expression in query designer?

This is not enough information. We should see the Excel file to see data to convert this formula to excel.
Are these all data in the same table in Access?
Are the name of fields of the table in Access the same as control on your forms?
Anyway it looks like this in Access:
=Nz((((txtSplits-txtSplitsBenchmark )*-txtNetCWT)*txtDisSchd3)+(((txtDamage-M7)*-txtNetCWT)*txtDisSchd4),"")

Open in new window

Is not working.  So I'm trying to break it down a bit at a time.  Here is what I have so far but I get an error:  "is not a valid name....."

SplitDamInCWT: IIf([Splits],0)-Nz([Forms]![frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse].[txtSplitsBenchmark],0)*Nz([NetCWT],0)*Nz([Forms!frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse].[txtDisSchd3],0)

FWIW here is another way to do it using
IIF() and Isserror()

This will show nothing if "YourExpression" evaluates to an error,
...or it will display the result of your expression if there is no error

...Here you will have to work out your parenthesis on your own though...

I ended up getting it to work with:

SplitDamInCWT: Format((([Splits]-[Forms]![frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse]![txtSplitsBenchmark])*-[NetCWT])*[Forms]![frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse]![txtDisSchd3]+(([Damage]-[Forms]![frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse]![txtDamBenchmark])*-[NetCWT])*[Forms]![frmAssemblySheetHeaderPulse]![txtDisSchd4],"Standard")

This ended up working.
