dlookup in report

Dear Experts

On an Access 2003 report I need a text box [Text24] to show the .tag from the report.  I have tried various ways including setting the control sourse of [Text24] to .tag but alas no joy.  Can this be done with a Dlookup - if so how? or any alternatives greatfully recieved
