Multiple DLookup - Access 2002

g'day,

I have check box "HasSecondaryAddress" in form frmContacts which serves to flag those contacts that are located at a branch of the company. What I want to do is as follows:

1) If true, dlookup tblBranchAddress and check for CompanyID and ContactID
         if a match if found display msgbox "name already there"
         exit sub
         if there is no match append record

2) If false, dlookup tblBranchAddress and check for CompanyID and ContactID
         if a match is found display msgbox "do you want to delete?"
              if yes delete record
              if no abort
          if a match is not found exit sub

I have the following code on the AfterUpdate event of the ckbox (messages are for testing purposes only and will be replaced with proper code later):

Private Sub HasSecondaryAddress_AfterUpdate()

Select Case "HasSecondaryAddress"

    Case True

        If (DLookup("CompanyID", "tblBranchAddress", "CompanyID" = Me![CompanyID] And _
                                                     "ContactID" = Me![ContactID])) Then
   
        MsgBox "contact there"
       
        Else
   
        MsgBox "contact not there"
       
        End If

    Case False

        If (DLookup("CompanyID", "tblBranchAddress", "CompanyID" = Me![CompanyID] And _
                                                     "ContactID" = Me![ContactID])) Then

        MsgBox "Do you want to delete this record?"

        Else
       
        MsgBox "aborting procedure"
        Exit Sub
       
        End If

    End Select

End Sub

Nothing happens. There are no message or error messages displayed. Any ideas?

thanks

Dave

Private Sub HasSecondaryAddress_AfterUpdate()

Select Case Me.HasSecondaryAddress

    Case True

        If Not IsNull(DLookup("CompanyID", "tblBranchAddress", "CompanyID" = Me![CompanyID] And _
                                                     "ContactID" = Me![ContactID])) Then
            MsgBox "contact there"
        Else
            MsgBox "contact not there"
        End If

    Case False

        If Not IsNull(DLookup("CompanyID", "tblBranchAddress", "CompanyID" = Me![CompanyID] And _
                                                     "ContactID" = Me![ContactID])) Then
              MsgBox "Do you want to delete this record?"
        Else
            MsgBox "aborting procedure"
        End If

    End Select

End Sub

When selecting a Q as the answer, you have the opertunity to give the 'expert' (me) a grade, A, B or C..

It must default to B.
