    Dlookup

    I have two tables. One table holds parameters (T_Parameters). On this table, it has the MIN and MAX. In another table, holds the test that was completed (T_Rate). I then created a form that is for the T_Rate. In it, there is the "description" of the material being tested as entered for the T_Rate. I want to pull in the parameters into the form header. I dropped a text box and entered



    =DLookUp("[Target_Window_MIN]","[T_Parameters]","[Description]=" & [Forms]![T_Rate]![Description])

    I have done this before, and I cant seam to get this one to work. Im stuck and I didn't expect this to take some much time, since I've seen other examples.

    Try

    =DLookUp("[Target_Window_MIN]","[T_Parameters]","[Description]='" & [Description] & "'")

    You have Description in both tables? Probably shouldn't be so. Can you show us the relationship diagram of your tables?

    Description is a reserved word and should not be used as a field name. Doing so can cause strange errors.

    Works....I didnt know description is a reserved word, and I thought actually having the same name helped. I learn more and more from yall. Thank you for the help!
