I am getting a #Error using a DLookup on a report..

Here is the control source for the field:

=DLookUp("[LastName]","tblEmployees","[ID] = " & [Reports]![rptOpenServiceEvents]![txtTechnician5])

How can I change this to the #Error goes away?

By the way... LastName is text and may be null.

It should read:

Dim lngID As Long
lngID = Nz([Reports]![rptOpenServiceEvents]![txtTechnician5], 0)
=DLookUp("[LastName]","tblEmployees","[ID] = " & lngID & "")

Of course, if rptOpenServiceEvents is not open, it will fail.

Am getting invalid use of null with this solution.

Here is what I have which is a copy/paste in the onprint event of the detail section of the report...

    Dim lngID As Long
    lngID = Nz([Reports]![rptOpenServiceEvents]![txtTechnician5], 0) = DLookup("[LastName]", "tblEmployees", "[ID] = " & lngID & "")

I got it mixed up, sorry. Try this:

=DLookUp("[LastName]","tblEmployees","[ID] = " & Nz([Reports]![rptOpenServiceEvents]![txtTechnician5], 0) & "")
