Access 2010 Report - Display Value from Query

I have an access 2010 web database that i'm trying to create a report on. The query for the report returns all of the expected values, but when binding a text box on the report it shows the ID value of a look-up field instead of the desired value.

the field is Day Of Week, it's value comes from a look-up field to a table named tblDayOfWeek

the table the look-up field is on is tblReading

Is there a way to specify which values are displayed from a look-up field?

you need to change the Record Source of the report with a query of the table with a join on the ID field of lookup table. Include the [Day Of Week] field in your query.

the query is something like this

Select tblReading.* ,tblDayOfWeek.[Day Of Week]
From tblReading Inner join tblDayOfWeek ON
