Good Day Experts,
I have never executed a Vlookup in Access and was wondering if I could get some assistance.
I have two tables FACMatch and CSWMatch, I would like to compare or match any cert num in FACMatch with cardholderid in CSWMatch.  I also need to remove the last two digits of the cardholderid before performing the Vlookup.  For your review I have attached the accdb. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
CSWMatch.accdb

The equivalent function in Access is named DLookup().  However, in most cases a join is more efficient.

select tbl1.fldA, tbl2.fldb
From tbl1 Inner Join tbl2 ON tbl1.fldA = tbl2.fldA;


select tbl1.fldA, DLookup("fldb", "tbl2", "fldA = " & tbl1.fldA)
From tbl1;

The first option is much more efficient than the second.

Not to mention that it would also be more portable (considering that the MS SQL Server topic was included in this thread).
