Default DlookUp Macro failing


This should work but doesn't and driving me nuts - not even sure where it's failing!!!

As I understand it, this code says...

I want the CustomerName field from the CustomersTable input to the CustomerName field on the active form and I want the CustomerName from the Entry in the CustomersTable that is in the record I just selected with the cboList box.

(I have it set to after Update on the cboList field)

DLookUp("CustomerName","CustomersTable","CustomerN ame = " & [cboList])

I know I'm missing some quotes or brackets or soemthing - I've tried a plethera of combinations - now show me the right choice!

Welcome to P2P Mike-

I assume that cboList's data type is text. If so, concatenate another single quote into the first string and one after [cboList].

DLookUp("CustomerName","CustomersTable","CustomerN ame = '" & [cboList])& "'"

Your syntax is correct if cboList is a numeric (as opposed to text).

One of those "gotcha's"
