Hey guys

Hope you can help

I have quite a simple Access database that details shipments made to various countries against which are dates of shipments, reference, number of cartons etc.

The complete list of data is held in the Full data table. In addition to this, I have two other tables called DPD charges and Inhouse charge. The DPD charge is what the courier has charged for the delivery whereas the Inhouse charge is what the business has charged the customer for the delivery.

The issue im having is in creating a lookup in the Full Data table in the form of an extra column next to the Weight column on the right, that looks at the country in DPD charge table and return the relevant courier charge for that particular line.

For example, on the first line, in the DPD Charge column, the first row would return 9.87 as this would be the charge for deliveries to Austria. This is evident in the attachment after my unsuccessful lookup trial.

I would be extremely grateful for some help on this, I’ve tried using the lookup wizard by creating a relationship however, I cannot get a result to auto-populate? Is this possible? or would this only be a manual entry only situation?

Your suggestions would be very welcome - ive attached the database to see if you can give me some direction
