I have a form in a database that I want the name of the user display in a text box when that user inputs their Person_Nbr and select a Month/year date. The source of the names are in the NAME field of the ppm table. Example when the user inputs 11111 as Person_Nbr the name that should display should be Melanie Davies in the Text box. Attached is the Database. Can you please help me accomplish this goal. I have tried different methods but I could not still get it to work. Thanks

you can try this,

Private Sub txtPerson_AfterUpdate()
Dim strsql
strsql = "Select * from ppm where person_nbr = " & Me.txtPerson
Me.RecordSource = strsql

End Sub

It works great. Is it possible to flip the Last Name, First name around and for it to display it as
Payroll Payment for "FirstName LastName"
