I have a working database where I am using a web form to collect input from users.
On one particular field that the users need to populate called ACNA, I want to look up the value they have entered in a database table named tblMasterACNA. The tblMasterACNA has 3 fields ID, ACNA and Customer.
I need to auto populate the text box "Customer" on my form based on looking in the tblMasterACNA and matching the entry to what is in the field ACNA and then of course displaying the corresponding "Customer" contained in field "Customer"

It is important for the Customer name to appear in the text box labled Customer after the lookup.
I tried this with no success:

=DLookup("[fieldACNA]","[tblMasterACNA]","[fieldACNA] = " & CInt([Customer].Caption) )

Below is the code I am using: (Note where  have the above snipet inserted, is this wrong?)
<!-- Begin form code --> 
 
<FIELDSET>
<LEGEND><b><h1>Proactive Maintenance Issue Referral Form<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Potomac Region</h1></b></LEGEND>
 
<H3>* All fields are required*</H3>
 
 
 
<form name="Input" method="Post" action="confirm.asp">
 
<table>
<input type="hidden" name="Region" value="Potomac">
<tr><td>Date Added: </td>
<tr><td><input type="text" name="Date Added" size="25" onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)"></td></tr>
<tr><td>CAC: </td>

=DLookup("[fieldACNA]","[tblMasterACNA]","[fieldACNA] = " & CInt([Customer].Caption) )
 
<tr><td>Ticket Number: </td></tr>
<tr><td><input type="text" name="Ticket Number" onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Ticket Source: </td></tr>
<tr><td><input type="text" name="Ticket Source" onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Monitoring Source: </td></tr>

<tr><td>Dispostion Code: </td></tr>
<tr><td><input type="text" name="Dispostion Code" onkeypress="return handleEnter(this, event)"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Summary: (limited to 50 Characters)</td></tr>
<tr><td><textarea cols="50" name="Summary" 
onKeyDown="textCounter(this,'progressbar1',56)" 
onKeyUp="textCounter(this,'progressbar1',56)" 
onFocus="textCounter(this,'progressbar1',56)"
></textarea></td></tr> 
</table>
 
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit Form" class="flashit" onClick='form_name.button_name.value="Please Wait...";return true'>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
<input type="reset" value="Clear Form">
 
<div id="progressbar1" class="progress"></div>
<script>textCounter(document.getElementById("maxcharfield"),"progressbar1",20)</script>
 
 
 
</form> 
</FIELDSET>

If this is a web form - running in a web browser - then you cannot use DLOOKUP - the browser has no idea what you mean.

If you are generating this HTML, then you can include the results of DLOOKUP in the generated HTML.

If you want the web page to perform the lookup on some user action, then you will need javascript on the client, and some kind of server language (.NET, php, etc.) to do your "dirty work" for you.
