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

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.
