    Unanswered: IIf help in report

    I'm currently working on a report and I'm trying to use an "if-then" type statement to state if the sum of something is either a "yes" or a "no" in a report; i've completed seperate if-then statements in the report seperately successfully, however I'm having some difficulty with this statement.

    My current data is as follows:

    Textbox1: 5
    Textbox2: 7
    Textbox3: 8
    Textbox4: 9

    My expression is as follows:

    =iif(([Textbox1]+[Textbox2]+[Textbox3]+[Textbox4])>=70, "yes", "no")

    Based on the values above which sum to 29 i expect the box with my expression to display a "no" however the box keeps displaying a "yes" and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Please help

    why not do the summing in the Query


    the textbox are text so you can't sum it
    but this mite work

    =iif((nz([Textbox1],0)+nz([Textbox2],0)+nz([Textbox3],0)+nz([Textbox4],0))>=70, "yes", "no")
    hope this help
