Creating and comparing text fields

I have a form called “frmppm” that displays Monthly Accounts, Amounts & Total of the Amounts when you enter the Person ID and Select the Period. This data is all from a table called “ppm”.
Question
My next task is to create another text box next to my Totals that has the Annual pay of this user divided by 12. This data comes from the “Annual Pay” field from another table called “Vendors”. The Fiscal year starts on the 1st of September of a year and ends on August 31st of the following year. Example we are in Fiscal Year 2011 which is indicated by “FY11” in the "FY" field of the vendors table. If the period selected for example is October 2010, then the “Annual Pay” that should be selected from the “Vendors” table is the one that has “FY11” and divide that amount by 12 to display in this new text box. If the period selected for example is October 2009, then the “Annual Pay” that should be selected from the “Vendors” table is the one that has “FY10” and divide that amount by 12 to display in this new text box. These 2 amounts from the text boxes are suppose to be the same but if they are different I want an error message to display Saying  they are not equal. Can you please help me to accomplish this task. Attached is a copy of the database with the ppm table, query and form. Also Attached is a copy of the Vendors table in excel format. I have also hi lighted the fields that matter in the vendors table.

You can use the DLookup function to "lookup" your value:

Me.YourTextbox = DLookup("Annual Pay", "Vendors", "FY='FY" & Cstr(Right(Me.txFY,2) - 1)) & "'")

Sorry hit the wrong button!

I have made the requested changes (and a couple more)

See what you think

Bye the way, before you add too much more to the database, you need to take a serious look at the table structure

It will make your life a lot harder in the future if you dont sort it out now Database11.mdb

This is it but they need to type the Person_nbr in the Person ID field as it was originally. Is it not possible to accomplish both

That Part is working again fine but it seems the error message is popping up every time you change the Month year date even when the totals are equal the error message keeps popping up. Thanks for your help again
