    Dlookup not working

    Hi all,

    I am trying to lookup for my product description based on the product category selected in the form. I have look through some of the tutorial video and found out that i can use dlookup to achieve that. But after building the dlookup function, i encounter errors in the textbox. Seek everyone help in guiding me. thanks. Dlookup.zip

    Does every ProductCategory have only 1 ProductDescription?

    A ---Apple
    B ---Banana

    This may be of assistance, and would be more efficient than a DLookup():

    Nope, it could be one product description match with multiple product category

    Product category ProductDescription
    A Apple
    C Apple
    D Apple

    Thank you! Thats what i need. But i have an issue now whereby when i want to my record in the form based on the selected category it shows the ID number instead of the product category. How do i make my code read the product category instead of the ID number?

    For instance:
    The code only read cbopcat as the ID, instead of apple

    Code:
    Dim sSQL As String
    'Insert into banana
    If Me.cbopcat = "Banana" Then
     sSQL = "Insert into [Banana] (ReceivedDate,ProductCategory,ProductDescription,ReceivedQuantity,[Currency],UnitPrice,TotalAmount,Remarks) " & _
     "Values ('" & Me.txtrcvdate & "','" & Me.cbopcat & "','" & Me.txtpdes & "','" & Me.txtrcvquantity & "','" & Me.txtcurrency & "','" & Me.txtunitprice & "','" & Me.txtttlamount & "','" & Me.txtremarks & "')"
    'Insert into Apple
    ElseIf Me.cbopcat = "Apple" Then
     sSQL = "Insert into [Apple] (ReceivedDate,ProductCategory,ProductDescription,ReceivedQuantity,[Currency],UnitPrice,TotalAmount,Remarks) " & _
     "Values ('" & Me.txtrcvdate & "','" & Me.cbopcat & "','" & Me.txtpdes & "','" & Me.txtrcvquantity & "','" & Me.txtcurrency & "','" & Me.txtunitprice & "','" & Me.txtttlamount & "','" & Me.txtremarks & "')"
    end if

    Try this:
    Code:
    Dim sSQL As String
    'Insert into banana
    If Me.cbopcat.Column(1) = "Banana" Then
     sSQL = "Insert into [Banana] (ReceivedDate,ProductCategory,ProductDescription,ReceivedQuantity,[Currency],UnitPrice,TotalAmount,Remarks) " & _
     "Values ('" & Me.txtrcvdate & "','" & Me.cbopcat.Column(1) & "','" & Me.txtpdes & "','" & Me.txtrcvquantity & "','" & Me.txtcurrency & "','" & Me.txtunitprice & "','" & Me.txtttlamount & "','" & Me.txtremarks & "')"
    'Insert into Apple
    ElseIf Me.cbopcat.Column(1) = "Apple" Then
     sSQL = "Insert into [Apple] (ReceivedDate,ProductCategory,ProductDescription,ReceivedQuantity,[Currency],UnitPrice,TotalAmount,Remarks) " & _
     "Values ('" & Me.txtrcvdate & "','" & Me.cbopcat.Column(1) & "','" & Me.txtpdes & "','" & Me.txtrcvquantity & "','" & Me.txtcurrency & "','" & Me.txtunitprice & "','" & Me.txtttlamount & "','" & Me.txtremarks & "')"
    end if
