Also, since you are starting this with IF, i'm assuming you have a corresponding Then:

If Me.amount > NZ(DLookup("totalvalue", "po_1", "[PO_oracle]= '" & Form_GR_trans.POoraclenum & "'"),0) Then

Try this - NZ handles cases where there are no matches by returning 0 instead of null:

If Me.amount > NZ(DLookup("totalvalue", "po_1", "[PO_oracle]= " & Form_GR_trans.POoraclenum),0)

Ot if PO Number is text enclose it in quotes:

If Me.amount > NZ(DLookup("totalvalue", "po_1", "[PO_oracle]= '" & Form_GR_trans.POoraclenum & "'"),0)

Jim Dettman has an EE Article that does a very good job of explaining the DLookup function here:

Make sure it is all on one line:
If Me.amount > NZ(DLookup("totalvalue", "po_1", "[PO_oracle]= '" & Form_GR_trans.POoraclenum & "'"),0)

Open in new window


Also try this:

If Me.amount > NZ(DLookup("totalvalue", "po_1", "[PO_oracle]= " & chr(34) & Form_GR_trans.POoraclenum & chr(34)),0)

Open in new window



If your PO number can contain single quotes, the first will fail..
