    DLookUp in control source of text box only returns value when clicked on

    Good Day,



    I have 3 text boxes on a form each of which gets their values from different queries using DLookup this is functional but only when I click on the text box its self, I have tried using the "On load" & "On current" to requery the textbox (Text38 as control name) but no luck,, another strange thing i've noticed, when I have the form open in access and i click on my taskbar, thus switching windows from access to the desktop but keeping access in view, all text boxes are calculated immediately.

    Please help

    The text boxes should get their data from the form query. Then assign the box to the field. Fastest.

    if you can't, then put the DLOOKUP in the ON CURRENT event. So if you change records, the data will change.
    =Dlookup(fld,qry,where)
