How do lookup when the values aren't a perfect match?

I have this Dlookup syntax and am trying to link the value in a table to the value on a form.

DLookup("[PLU #]", "tblImportedExcelData", "[Criteria] = " & Forms![Customer Details 2]!CustomerName)

But the problem is, for example, the value on the form may be "00000000000051"  (without the quote marks obviously).  And the value in the table  is "51".

In other words the two relate using the right-most characters.  They are both number fields.

What would the corrected DLookup syntax be?

What I have found is that the number field in the formis always 14 "characters".  So I've tried formatting the number in the table by using this:  (which isn't working)

DLookup("[Week1]", "tblImportedExcelData", Format("([UPC],"00000000000000")) = " & Forms![Customer Details 2]!CustomerName)

try

DLookup("[Week1]", "tblImportedExcelData", Format("([UPC],"00000000000000") = '" & Forms![Customer Details 2]!CustomerName  & "')"

or

DLookup("[Week1]", "tblImportedExcelData", "[UPC] = " & Val(Forms![Customer Details 2]!CustomerName))
