How alert user if record already exists but also provide their DOB

Another expert helped me with a situation where I need to alert a user if a name already exists in the database.  But not I need to also provide them the existing record's date of birth from the DOB field.

Here is my before update code so far.  How can I change it to show the records DOB?

    If DCount("*", "Member Table", "MemberFirstName = '" & Me.txtMemberFirstName & "' AND MemberLastName = '" & Me.txtMemberLastName & "'") > 0 Then
        MsgBox "There is already a member in the database with this name.", vbOKOnly
    End If

You can use DLookup:
Dim DOB As Variant

DOB = DLookup("[DOB]", "Member Table", "MemberFirstName = '" & Me.txtMemberFirstName & "' AND MemberLastName = '" & Me.txtMemberLastName & "'")
If Not IsNull(DOB) Then
    MsgBox "There is already a member in the database with this name having DOB at " & DOB & ".", vbOKOnly + VbInformation
End If
