Trying to send email to a DLookup email address

I have a command button on a form which when clicked is supposed to send an email to a DLookup.  Here is the code:

   With objMail
   'Set body format to HTML
     .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
     .To = DLookup("[ApproverEmail]", "tblEmployees", "[EmpName] = Form![EmpName]")
     '.Cc = "ccaddress@yourmailaddress.com"
     .Subject = "Time Card Approval Notification For Employee - " & [txtEmployeeName] & " - Dated " & [txtTranxDateHeader]
     '.HTMLBody = "<htmltags>Regular Hours = " & [txtTotRegHrs] & "<br>Overtime Hours = " & [txtTotOThrs] & "<br>Total Hours = " & [txtTotTimeCardHrs] & "<br></htmltags>"
     .HTMLBody = "<htmltags>Regular Hours = " & RegHrs & "<br>Overtime Hours = " & OThrs & "<br>Total Hours = " & totHrs & "<br></htmltags>"
   End With

The problem appears to be in the line:

 .To = DLookup("[ApproverEmail]", "tblEmployees", "[EmpName] = Form![EmpName]")

becase if I hard code an email address like:

'.To = "name@somecompany.com"

it works fine.
