Using Dlookup with multiple fields to display one field

I have a Table [IEGDate] with 4 primary key fields; [Effective], [HHSize], [Frequency], [IncomeType] with a  non-primary key field [IncomeThreshold].

I also have a form [IEChild], with fields [HHSize], [HHIncome] and [Frequency].  I need to lookup these 3 fields in the [IEGDate] table and return the [IncomeType] on this form.  The [HHIncome] field would correspond with the [IncomeThreshold].  In summary, the fields [HHSize] and [Frequency] must match and the [HHIncome] must be equal to or less than the [IncomeThreshold] to display the [IncomeType].  If the [HHIncome] is greater than the [IncomeThreshold], display "No".

Can you assist?

I think you would be much better off doing this filtering in a query used for the form's record source, or possibly a subform.  It is a lot easier to work with filters and calculations in the Query Designer, as opposed to the control source of a textbox on a form.

I would like to use the DLookup feature, ( or some other lookup) to search the table and display results, if it is possible.

This looks up one field "Entity" in table "comma"  with condition of 2 fields Year and Case:

 DLookup("Entity", "comma", "[Year]='" & Me.Year & "' AND [Case]='" & Me.Case & "'")

Multiple fields go in the where condition.

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Thank you for the Dlookup example above, but I would like to lookup 3 fields, returning 1.

"Thank you for the Dlookup example above, but I would like to lookup 3 fields, returning 1. "

Do you mean if we have a table x(a, b, c, d)
a b c d
1 1 1 b
1 1 2 c
2 2 2 d

If you look for record with 1, 1, 1 do you expect to report back the value b?
Using a where clause will report the same result.

So what exactly you are looking for?

Talk as you would tell some one over the phone what to do to get the expected result.

In a form [Family], I have 3 fields, [HSize], [HIncome], [Frequency]

In a table [IEG]I have 4 fields [HSize], [IncomeThreshold], [Frequency], [Type]

I would like the database to compare the fields in [Family] table to fields in [IEG] table.

[Family]![HSize] must equal [IEG]![HSize]
[Family]![Frequency] must equal [IEG]![Frequency]
[Family]![HIncome] must be less than or equal to [IEG]![IncomeThreshold]

If it meets all 3 criteria, display the [IEG]![Type], if not display N.


Hope this clarifies my request.

Yes this is the same case, look for [IEG]![Type]

DLOOKUP ("[Type]", "IEG", " [IEG]![HSize]='" & [Family]![HSize] & "' AND [Frequency]='" & [Family]![Frequency] & "' AND  [IncomeThreshold] >='" & [Family]![HIncome] &"'")

Remove single quotes  if fields are numeric.

Works perfectly, except

 "If it meets all 3 criteria, display the [IEG]![Type], if not display N."
Can I display on the [Family] form

Nz(DLOOKUP ("[Type]", "IEG", " [IEG]![HSize]='" & [Family]![HSize] & "' AND [Frequency]='" & [Family]![Frequency] & "' AND  [IncomeThreshold] >='" & [Family]![HIncome] &"'"),"N")

"And to show on family form?  Use unbound field? "

Yes, you may use it in proper place:

TxtBox1 = Nz(DLOOKUP ("[Type]", "IEG", " [IEG]![HSize]='" & [Family]![HSize] & "' AND [Frequency]='" & [Family]![Frequency] & "' AND  [IncomeThreshold] >='" & [Family]![HIncome] &"'"),"N")

Or you may set the control source for a TextBox as =Nz(DLOOKUP ("[Type]", "IEG", " [IEG]![HSize]='" & [Family]![HSize] & "' AND [Frequency]='" & [Family]![Frequency] & "' AND  [IncomeThreshold] >='" & [Family]![HIncome] &"'"),"N")
