Access 2010 auto-fill issues

I have a DB with a SQL backend. There are three tables linked. I'm trying to use a barcode scanner to enter info quickly into a form. When I scan the Work Order number I'd like the description, date entered, due date all auto-filled. I was trying Dlookup but didn't have any luck.

Is Dlookup my best choice here? Or are there other ways to go about this?

Thanks

Chris

How were you using DLookup and what problems did you have with it?

I was able to figure it out, I was trying to use it in VBA, not realizing you could use expression builder. Once I did, I ran right through it, not issue. Thank you for answering so quickly.
