I am trying to use a DLookup with multiple criteria's but it's not working correctly. Can anyone take a look and see where I went wrong with the criteria's? I am trying to  match up the Employee's Name and a date field.


=DLookUp("[Wage]","qryWageLastMax","[EmpName]= " & Nz([cboEmpName],0) And "[WageDate]< " & [txtWageDate])

value of Empname probably needs quote delimiters and date probably needs # delimiters
The word And needs to be in the criteria string

=DLookUp("[Wage]","qryWageLastMax", "[EmpName]= '" & Nz([cboEmpName],0) & "' And [WageDate]< #" & [txtWageDate] & "#")

Thank you very much Crystal! That worked perfectly! I get confused with all the double quotes and single quotes. :)

you're welcome - happy to help ;)

if you are using double quotes to specify the criteria, then you can use single quotes inside that to delimit a text value UNLESS the text might have ' ... in which case, substitute "" (2 double quote marks) for each of the single quote marks ~
