I'm very new to SQL.  i'm trying to get my Access code converted and I'm not sure how to utilize DLookup. The only examples I can find for DLookup are very simple.  
Is that all DLookup does?  
I have an Access select query that I was going to change to Dlookup.  See Attached code.
Is it possible to change it to DLookup?
If so, how?
Would it be a good use of DLookup?
Thanks

       
SELECT DISTINCT tblDaily.QCReportNo, tblDaily.DailyDate, tblDaily.VersionId, tblTestsPerformed.TestDescription, tblRooms.RoomNo, tblTestsPerformed.Results
FROM (tblWorkRelease INNER JOIN (tblQCReportNo INNER JOIN tblDaily ON tblQCReportNo.QCReportNo = tblDaily.QCReportNo) ON tblWorkRelease.WorkReleaseId = tblQCReportNo.WorkReleaseID) INNER JOIN (tblTestsPerformed INNER JOIN tblRooms ON tblTestsPerformed.TestDescId = tblRooms.TestDescId) ON tblDaily.QCReportNo = tblTestsPerformed.QCReportNo
WHERE (((tblDaily.DailyDate) Between ([Forms]![frmPrevDailyDFT]![cboFmDate]) And ([Forms]![frmPrevDailyDFT]![cboToDate])))
ORDER BY tblDaily.VersionId, tblTestsPerformed.TestDescription;

Converted to SQL Server? T-SQL doesn't know DLookup

You are right.  What I mean is instead of an Access backend I now have SQL backend.  I still have a SQL front end.  
Would it work for that?
Thanks!

DLookup won't work with T-SQL at all. You say you have a SQL Server front end? What is the SQL Server front end that you have?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry, I'm a bit rushed to get out of here so I didn't proof my e-mail.  But I really appreciate your help so I'm trying to answer your questions.  

I have an Access front end.  I am using DLookup for easy small stuff so I was going to try and expand to bigger stuff but didn't know how.

If you're rushed then you better stick to what you know. None of the the domain functions that I know of in Access will work in SQL Server.

Actually I'm just rushed to leave tonight.  The project works with the access code I have so this is not an urgent thing.  I'm just trying to learn better use of SQL.  Everytime I have a problem with my code the subject of "redoing it so it takes advantage of SQL Server" comes up.  I'm trying to do that but so far without much luck.

Most of what I've seen is doable without a sever learning curve. You're not going to be able to use the DLookup and some of the SQL will be a bit different.

"Doable" sounds great.  I'm just looking to improve the code I have.  Between DAO, ADO and SQL I"m not being consistant which is probably my biggest problem.  Thanks again for your help.
