Access - DLookup in Query?

Is there anyway to look up a value from a text field on one of my forms from a query? I dont know if this can be done via DLookup or something? An example would be;

Select DateUpdated from tblDate Where DateUpdated = #Forms!frmAddData!TextDate.Value#

Your command is essentially correct but it needs adjusting depending on where you are running the query,
If this is a saved query you can omit the # #.

If you are using it for a recordset in code then you need something like:

dim strsql
strsql = "Select DateUpdated from tblDate Where DateUpdated = #" & Forms!frmAddData!TextDate.Value & "#"
set rs = db.openrecordset(strsql)

If you still can't sort it out then post back and explain what you are trying to do.
