  12.   INNER JOIN dbo_STATUS ON dbo_COMPANY.StatusID=dbo_STATUS.StatusID) 
  13.   INNER JOIN dbo_REP ON dbo_COMPANY.DATAJack=dbo_REP.Initials
  14. WHERE 
  15.   dbo_STATUS.Descr<>"PrgIV" And Tbl_Star.DATE=#1/31/2009#;

Assuming that by 'zero field' you mean null, and assuming by 'PRGIV' you are actually referring to the field dbo_Status.Appr tested in your IIF, use the Nz function to replace the null with an actual value that you can then work on appropriately. If you want the IIF testing field dbo_status.Abbr to return 0 if the field is null or contains the text constant 'PRGIV' you would change the IIF in line 8 to the following:

  1. IIF( Nz(dbo_STATUS.Abbr, "PRGIV") = "PRGIV"), ... 
If you want to return a different value for the null case then wrap your existing IIF statement within another IIF as follows:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. IIF(dbo_STATUS.Abbr IS NULL, (do something else here), IIF(dbo_Status.Abbr = "PRGIV", ...
