I have the following DLookup and I keep a "Datatype Mismatch" error.

Me.Possible_Score = DLookup("[Possible Score]", "tblEnrollment_QualCriteriaReview", "[Subcode] = '" & Left([cboQualRevCriteria], 5) & "' And [Region] = '" & [Region] & "'")

What is wrong?

Thanks,

That error usually means you're getting a mismatch between, say, a numeric value and a text value. For example, is the [Subcode] field numeric and the first 5 characters are supposed to be, but perhaps include something that has an "o" instead of a zero in it?

Your

 Left([cboQualRevCriteria], 5

is that string data or number data?

If it is a number then use CInt( Left([cboQualRevCriteria], 5)
if its alphanumeric try Chr(34) &  Left([cboQualRevCriteria], 5) & chr(34)

chr(34) is quotation marks "

I like Chr(34) & somestringvariable & chr(34) better than trying to get double sets of quotes to work.

I couldn't get it to work with any of the suggestions, so I just tried a different route.

Thanks everyone.

It's ok if you went a different route, but post up what you did do.
That way everyone who may happen to google across your question finds an answer.
