Get IIF statement from field

I have inherited a database that has a number of queries that have fields defined like:
IIf(IsNull([Table1.Field1]), 0, [Table1.Field1]) AS [New Field Name]
Your code will only return the “New Field Name” portion (ie: the field name). Is there a way to get the underlying “IIf…..” statement from the field?
Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure I understand this question; First, instead of the "IIF" function, I would use the "Nzz" custom function (which can be found via the "VBA Reference Library" in the YittBox Free Code section).

Hello. Can you kindly clarify which code you're referring to? If you want to extract SQL string from a query in your database, you could use code below:
     CurrentDB.QueryDefs("YourQueryName").SQL
Furthermore, if you want to extract only the SELECT statement, you could utilize GetWordsBetween procedure (which can be found via the "VBA Reference Library" in the YittBox Free Code section) like:
     GetWordsBetween(CurrentDB.QueryDefs("YourQueryName").SQL,"SELECT ","FROM ")
Please let us know whether it answered your question. T.Hanks
