Missing Operator - Dlookup

Need another pair of eyes on this, I do not see anything wrong with this statement, however, I am getting Missing Operator error.

                varBefore = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & ctl.OldValue)

The first set of Dlookups work fine, do not see any differences in the syntax.


For Each ctl In frm.Controls
        If ctl.Tag = "Audit" Then
            If ctl.Name = "PartnerID" Then
                varBefore = DLookup("Partner", "TL_PartnerNames", "PartnerID = " & ctl.OldValue)
                varAfter = DLookup("Partner", "TL_PartnerNames", "PartnerID = " & ctl.Value)
            ElseIf ctl.Name = "IntAgency" Then
                varBefore = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & ctl.OldValue)
                varAfter = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & ctl.Value)
                varBefore = ctl.OldValue
                varAfter = ctl.Value
            End If

if the field  "IntAgencyRecID" is text, use this

 varBefore = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = '" & ctl.OldValue & "'")


varBefore = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & chr(34) & ctl.OldValue & chr(34))

obviously either the OldValue or the Value of the control that is being evaluated is NULL.  Try:

varBefore = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & NZ(ctl.OldValue,0))
varAfter = DLookup("AgencyName", "TA_PartnerInternalAgency", "IntAgencyRecID = " & NZ(ctl.Value,0))
