pass dlookup value to a text field.

experts, here's my code for the afterupdate event Combo0 in my form and after update I have a blank field for textbox "PM".

Private Sub Combo0_AfterUpdate() = DLookup("Hours", "qr", "Forms![Form1].[Group]='PM")
End Sub

the requery is to run query "qr" whose criteria depends on the value of the above combo box.

Am I doing something similar to a circular formula here? If so, please help

Your criteria is not quite right.

You have the first two parts right, but you have to tell Access which field in the query qr you want to set the criteria on.  So you should have something like:

DLookup("Hours","qr","SomeFieldIn_qr=" & forms!Form1!Combo0)

If that doesn't help, post here with some more details, in particular the SQL from query qr and the field you want to filter it by.
