Hi,

Is there a vlookup equivalent in Access? I ran a query and would like to use the results as a driver to pull information out of a specific field from another table. I seen some VBA solutions but I want to avoid that for now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

DLookup() is probably the closest

Dlookup("fieldname", "tablename", "IDFieldname= " & somenumber)
