    When I had the same problem about 10 years ago, the solution was an updated BIOS flash. The drive was a Seagate, but I have no memory now of the brands of mobo or CPU.

    Re: MS Access IIF Statement Conditions

    The IIF currently sits in your query. Instead, in the code behind your Form, you can use IF.
