Hello

  First Paramter is the field you want to search in, second parameter the value, and last parameter the field that you want to have it's value based on search on first parameter

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 V : Variant;
begin
  V := Table1.Lookup('CustNo','1231','Company') ;
  ShowMessage(V);
end;

Remember, Lookup method doesn't move the Pointer to the found record, it's just give you the result, if you would like the pointer to move for the found record, use Located instead of it,

HTH

Regards,
Mohammed
