Afternoon,

I have a set of DLookups which populate a text field accoring to what ID number someone puts in another text field. Can someone tell me how I would output a message box if that ID retrn no records? My current code is;

strSPNValue = txtSPN.Value
txtSPNName = DLookup("[spn_name]", "Sel_Historical_SPN_Lookup", "SPN ='" & strSPNValue & "'")

Thanks

Use an If-then block.  If Dlookup returns a Null, then there are no records found.

Dim varLU as Variant
strSPNValue = txtSPN.Value
VarLU =  DLookup("[spn_name]", "Sel_Historical_SPN_Lookup", "SPN ='" & strSPNValue
if isNull(VarLU) then
    MsgBox "No records found"
   ' etc
end if
txtSPNName = VarLU

Or:

txtSPNName = Nz(DLookup("[spn_name]", "Sel_Historical_SPN_Lookup", "SPN ='" & strSPNValue & "'"), "")
If txtSPNName = "" Then
    'do something
End If
