I tried adding two values for the Dlookup but was told it is not possible.   In my database I need to pull the body text and a subject and put it into a default email.  See the sample.

You should dim a separate verbal for each dlookup.
i showed you this in your previous question.



From all you questions it seems that you should go learn the basic of how to write and use VBA coding.

You are correct.  I need to learn VBA.  But I really appreciate your help though.  Its really helped me get this up and running.  If I can get this email thing that you've been helping me with working it will be a huge help.  I tried the subject line code and it did not work.   Maybe I am doing something wrong.

and BTW it's not impossible to get Dlookup to return more then one value.

ie.

= Dlookup("[Address] & ';' & [City]","tblCustomers","[CustomerID] = 1")
 
Then do a split on the semi-colon.

he needs one dlookup for subject and one for the body to be entered the the email, so he will need 2 separate dlookup's.
