Hi ,
See attached.
Click on frmDetail.
Then click on the yellow field.
This is a part code which should then find a "CostPrice" from tblSpareParts.

However, it gives and error when the part code is chosen.
I appreciate that the data strucures are not great.
However, could some one advise how I can stop my dlookup from crashing.

I don't seem to get an error. How exactly can I reproduce the issue?

Here you go:

Me.Price1 = DLookup("[CostPrice]", "tblSPareParts", "[PartCode] = " & Chr(34) & Me.Part1 & Chr(34))

Me.Price1 = 0
End If

End Sub

You are welcome.

Remember, Text criteria has to be surrounded with double quotes ( Chr(34) ) and Date criteria has to be enclosed with #'s
