I am trying to write a sub that will loop through my tables to check if there is an entry in each table for a given subject number.  The DLookup function is the only way I know  to read data from other tables (besides the one the form is based on) but the sub stops running every time DLookup returns a null.  Should I be using a different function or is there a way to disable the error message that appears every time DLookup returns a null?

Thanks.  I think I get it.  To look through all of my tables for the same variable,
I would need to repeat the routine but change this:

Set MySet = MyDB.OpenRecordset("Employees", DB_OPEN_DYNASET)

statement, replacing the table name each time?
