Can you advise what data types are the columns tOutLab and Office in your ActNo table?
Can you advise what controls are Me.OutLab and Me.Office (most likely text boxes, but please double check)

Yes the tOutlab is a string, Office is also a string, Me.Outlab and Me.office are combo boxes.

I find using single quote around text values is easier that endless double quotes, so I'd suggest
sAccountNo = DLookup("ActNo", "tOutLab", "Lab = '" &Me.OutLab & "' AND Office = '" & Me.Office & "'")

Depending on how Combo Boxes are created either first or second will work:
sAccountNo = DLookup("ActNo", "tOutLab", "Lab = '" & Me.OutLab.Text & "' AND Office = '" & Me.Office.Text & "'") 

Open in new window

sAccountNo = DLookup("ActNo", "tOutLab", "Lab = '" & Me.OutLab.Value & "' AND Office = '" & Me.Office.Value & "'") 

Open in new window

Explanation: You can create Combo Boxes on the form that display text for the items, but the values for the items will have different codes. In this case the actual value that the tables need to be compared with need to be tested against "Value" property. Most of the time, however, you need to test against "Text" property

Sorry neither is working... I don't think I need that as the following is working:

sAccountNo = DLookup("ActNo", "tOutLab", "Lab = '" & Me.OutLab & "'")

It just the multi-criteria that I can't figure out.

Chances are the combo uses an ID and displays the text. Try
sAccountNo = DLookup("ActNo", "tOutLab", "Lab = '" & Me.OutLab.Column1 & "' AND Office = '" & Me.Office.Column1 & "'")
