    Default MSACCESS Formula Help

    Not sure why I keep getting an Invalid Syntax error for this formula. I want it to return "Complete" in the cell when StepsDetailOpen column cell is blank. Below is the formula I'm using. Any thoughts??


    Steps Detail Status: IIF([StepsDetailOpen]" ","COMPLETE")

    Try:
    Code:
    Steps Detail Status: IIF([StepsDetailOpen]="","COMPLETE","")
    Note that a single space (" ") is not the same as blank/empty ("").

    1. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access
    2. Use the Search functionality on this board
    3. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.
