Help making a microsoft access query more efficient.

I have an access query that works fine, but it is slow.  I feel like perhaps there is a better way to write it? 

tot0: IIf([Administrator_VhTrans]![wholesale] Is Null,0,[Administrator_VhTrans]![wholesale])+IIf([Administrator_VhTrans]![Option_Cost] Is Null,0,[Administrator_VhTrans]![Option_Cost])

Note: the field sometimes contains a null value, throwing off my results. If it is null, I need it  to be zero.

Take it a step further if you can; don't allow null in the field and default it to zero.
