What is wrong with this:

Me.txtGrowDaysEarly = DLookup("GrowDaysEarly", "tblCatalog", "TextMnumber = = '" & (Nz(Me![cboTextMnumber], 0)) & "'")

TextMnumber  is a text field.

There was an extra (

Me.txtGrowDaysEarly = DLookup("GrowDaysEarly", "tblCatalog", "TextMnumber = '" & Nz(Me.cboTextMnumber, 0) & "'")

I normally do:

Dim strCriteria as string
strCriteria = "TextMnumber = '" & Nz(Me.cboTextMnumber, 0) & "'"
debug.print strCriteria
Me.txtGrowDaysEarly = DLookup("GrowDaysEarly", "tblCatalog", strCriteria)

Although this is longer, it gives me the opportunity to test the criteria that is going to be evaluated.
