DLookup criteria problem

Hi

I am using DLookup in an unbound field in a report. I want it to look up the field in a query with criteria for age = "<5" and with a year in the "Year" field in the query that matches the "rYear" field in the report. All fields are text data type. The query is called "All Other disease" and the field in the query is called "Abscess". The code I'm using works fine without the last part with year, but once I add in the year criteria I get #NAME.

=DLookup("Abscess","All Other disease","[Age]='<5' and [Year] like [rYear]")

Thanks.

<All fields are text data type.>
1. Can I ask why age an year are text instead of numbers?
Aggregate functions are so much easier when using numbers.
2. Year is a Reserved word in Access so don't use it as a field name.
Besides you should make it more descriptive anyway.
(SchoolYear, StartYear, ...etc)

Try this in any event:
 DLookUp("Abscess","[All Other disease]","[Age]='<5'" & " AND [Year] =" & "'" & [rYear] & "'")

sample attached, see query1
