Given:
A table: tPricing
A query: Select (DeliveryID, PricePeriodID) from tPricing Where (tPricing!DeliveryID = Forms!fPricing!DeliveryID AND tPricing!PricePeriodID = Forms!fPricing!PricePeriodID)

I then want to save the query results (only 2 fields in one record are possible) in Variables that I can validate (e.g. Null). I do not want to save the same information twice!

Is it doable? How, please?

It is doable in VBA by opening the query and accessing the column and storing them in variables . . . assuming that is what you are trying to do.
I do not want to save the same information twice!
 I am not exactly sure what you mean by that part of the question, though.

So what would be the syntax?

StrSQL = Select( ........)
DoCmd.RunSQL (strSQL)    I expect Two fields from this. Say Field1 and Field2

Var1 = Field1
Var2 = Field2

Will that do it?

I used DLookUp once for each field I was looking for. It worked

I'm trying, I really am. But I've seen so many wrong approaches involving date(time) boundaries I despair about my inability to explain it. I've seen quite a few recently that define a non-leap year as 364 days, or 366 days and the list goes on. …
