<i need to make  a validation during enter data in table or form>

do the validation using a form..

use the beforeupdate of the form or the control (textbox) where you enter the data.

private sub controlName_beforeupdate(cancel as integer)
' verify the amount

if me.controlName > dlookup("originalamount", "tableName", "[po]=" & me.txtPo) then
   msgbox "Amount is greater than original amount"
   cancel=true
  exit sub
end if


end sub
