I a just starting to use ms/access 2010 and have a small db wuth 3 tables: [beneficiario], [ordempagamento] and [projetos].

I am trying to build a form for [ordempagamento] that, from an input code (a name) would retrieve an address from [beneficiario].

So I am using the following sysntax:

= Dlookup ("Morada";"Beneficiarios";"Nome =" & [FormNomeBeneficiario])

It would not work, yelding #error as a return

also tried:

=DLookUp([Beneficiarios].[Morada];[Beneficiarios];[Beneficiarios].[Nome]=[NomeBeneficiario])

and

= Dlookup ("[Morada]";"[Beneficiarios]";"[Nome] =" & [FormNomeBeneficiario])

could nor pit to work

I am attachiing the database

The lookup should be..

=DLookUp("[Morada]","[beneficiarios]","[Nome]='" & [formNomeBeneficiario] & "'")

Ypu also need to add a command into the FormNomeBeneficiario combo box afterupdate event procedure..
