I have an Access 2003 form, for simplicity sake lets say I have fields Name, address, city, state, zip and comments. I have an after update event in the name field that does a dlookup to my contacts table and based on the name entered, it automatically populates the address, city, state, zip with corresponding data. That works great, however, in the contacts table I also have a comments field, which this dlookup should also populate once the name is entered, but the comments field on the form doesn't auto-populate until I actually click in the field, then as soon as I click in the field, the correct dlookup data magically appears. The only diff between these few fields is that the name, address, cit, state, zip are text fields, the comments field is memo. Any ideas???
