Dear Experts,

I am trying to perform Select If in MSSQL  in Access, not having any success.   All I want to do is have 2 columns with addresses, pick the one that is not blank to use.

Name: Short text
Address: Short text
BillingAddress: Short text

The data will have either Address or BillingAddress filled, and I want to create mailing labels.

I tried to write SELECT IF ( Address != "", Address, BillingAddress) As LabelAddress From MyTable   and getting syntax error,  I am not sure if MSSQL support SELECT IF.
How could I accomplish this in Access?  Do I need to create VBA module?

Please advise.
