Format of Expression

This is a question about how to properly create the correct expression in the expression builder to accomplish my intent but first I will give some background.

I am trying to populate the contents of a field 'SubRealTot' on a subform 'subfrm_Related_TTSDetail' based on a query 'subfrm_Related_TTSDetail' and some fields on the mainform '[Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![ReltdPromID]' and '[Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![VendorNumber]'.

I want to select the field 'RealSum' from the query entry that matches the Vendor Number and Related Promotion ID on the main form.  Below I have include the contents of the Expression builder used as the control source for the subform field 'SubRealTot', which is where I want to display the total.  It displays 0. I have never used a compound condition on a Dlookup in the expression builder and suspect that the syntax is not correct.  The expression worked when I had only the first condition
 =DLookUp("[qrySumHstDetail].[RealSum]","qrySumHstDetail","[qrySumHstDetail].[PromID]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![ReltdPromID])

Of course the answer I got was incorrect because it always pulled the total for the first vendor it encountered.  I then added the the 'And' condition and now it doesn't match any entries in the query, but it should based on the contents of the respective fields on the screen.

Field 'SubRealTot' Control Source, Expression Builder contents

=DLookUp("[qrySumHstDetail].[RealSum]","qrySumHstDetail","[qrySumHstDetail].[PromID]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![ReltdPromID] And "[qrySumHstDetail].[VendorNumber]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![VendorNumber])

Any ideas?

you need the keyword AND as part of the text, not code

here is your updated whereclause for your DLookup

"[qrySumHstDetail].[PromID]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![ReltdPromID] & " And [qrySumHstDetail].[VendorNumber]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![VendorNumber])

are they both numeric fields?

no, PromID and ReltdPromID are numeric, the two vendor number fields are text.

Neither of the suggested formats worked.  Perhaps rockiroads has discovered the pertinent fact, that vendor number is actually a text field.  How would this change the format?

Try:

=DLookUp("[qrySumHstDetail].[RealSum]","qrySumHstDetail","[qrySumHstDetail].[PromID]=" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![ReltdPromID] & " And [qrySumHstDetail].[VendorNumber]='" & [Forms]![frmTTSHead_Detail_Related]![VendorNumber] & "'")

Text fields need a single quote before and after.  something='text'

Date fields need a number sign before and after. somedate=#date#
