Hello, I just cant seem to get my head around this. I have it working in one form but then using the same syntax it does not work in another. Please help.
Ideally i want to lookup to criteria to then get me result but am just trying to get it working using one criteria.

=DLookUp("[rftotal]","[ringfencedstock]","[offerref]=" & [Forms]![offermain]![ref])

rftotal is a numeric field

Thanks for any help.

i don't see anything wrong with your dlookup

did you check the name of the fields and controls

if [offerref] is text

=DLookUp("[rftotal]","ringfencedstock","[offerref]='" & [Forms]![offermain]![ref] & "'")

The important datatype here is offerref.

If that is text...

=DLookUp("[rftotal]","[ringfencedstock]","[offerref]='" & [Forms]![offermain]![ref] & "'")

Thank you both, you were spot on. The offerref is text. I have added what you sent and that works a treat. Could you also help me with the second critera,

And "[stockcode]='" & [Forms]![offermain]![offersubform]![stockcode] & "'"

Many thanks

Try this:

=DLookUp("[rftotal]","[ringfencedstock]","[offerref]='" & [Forms]![offermain]![ref] & "' And [stockcode]='" & [Forms]![offermain]![offersubform]![stockcode] & "'")

Iain -

Since that second question was not really part of the original post, perhaps an even point split would be more equitable (right now, I've got the lion's share)?  I can fix that for you if  you want... (or use the Request Attention button)

If you could fix that I would appreciate it. You have both helped me out in the past as well... - thanks
