I can't find any examples of how to use the DLOOKUP function in a table to lookup text from values in another table.

The sample DB I created has two tables:
Table1
Table2

I am trying to pull the "Employee Training" field from Table 2 to Table 1, without using a query.

See example DB
DLookup.accdb

You can't use any sort of calculation/lookup in a table.

If you have a form you can set the control source of, say, a textbox using DLookup.

You will need to use a query or do this at the Form level.
