Yes, you can use the iif to flip the sign.

Is orderDeta and det the table names? The delimiter for function arguments are commas, not semicolons.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. iif(orderDeta.trans='in',det.qy,det.qy* -1)

That usually means one of your fields or table names are spelled incorrectly. Please post the full SQL code
