DLookup can only return a single value.

From Microsoft's website (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/208786):
The DLookup() function returns one value from a single field even if more than one record satisfies the criteria. If no record satisfies the criteria, or if the domain contains no records, DLookup() returns a Null.

Try this expression:

=DLookUp("Account","Query1","[State]=" & Chr(34) & [cmbmstate] & " and [juris]= " & Chr(34) & [cmbmjuris] & Chr(34))

Hi,

you can of course use a recordset and assemble the wanted account numbers to insert it into a textbox. See the attached file for that.

...should not enter a "brief description" with enter key...:-)

I wanted to add that you should better use a subform and then show the wanted records instead. As you already have a checkbox field in the table you can add this so the user can check or uncheck any row or you can use your UPDATE command to check/uncheck them. The query needed for the subform would be your Query1. No problems with DLookup or VBA code to assemble a string with a recordset.

Cheers,

Christian
