Try this.  And what is the error you are getting ?

DLookUp("Time Start","qryLastAuditLogDate","Time Start = " & "#" & [Time Start] & "#")

Do you have
=DLookkup()

(equal sign in front of DLookup) ?

And where does [Time Start]  exist ?

(note the brackets around Time Start

=DLookUp("Time Start","qryLastAuditLogDate","[Time Start] = " & "#" & [MaxOfTime Start] & "#")

or

=DLookUp("Time Start","qryLastAuditLogDate","[Time Start] = " & [MaxOfTime Start])

"Last Audit Log Date is lookup"
Not sure what you mean ?

You are using DLookup to grab a value from a query, right ?

Theses ... more brackets

=DLookUp("[Time Start]","qryLastAuditLogDate","[Time Start] = " & "#" & [MaxOfTime Start] & "#")

or

=DLookUp("[Time Start]","qryLastAuditLogDate","[Time Start] = " & [MaxOfTime Start])

Wait ... that SQL is only returning one value ... so this is all you should need

=DLookUp("[MaxOfTime Start]","qryLastAuditLogDate")

Why not use DMAX, and do away with the query as the control's record source:

=DMAX("[Time Start]","tbl_Inactivity")
