Using DLOOKUP Function to fill out Multiple Text Boxes ... Is this even possible

2 New Member
I have been having trouble with a simple Dlookup command that was Reccommended to me by a nice fellow named Vic, On the other hand I have statements like this that wont run they give me a run time error

Dim QuoteNumber As String

QuoteNumber = Me.txtQuoteNumb er

Me.txtDealerNum ber = DLookup("Dealer _Number", "Quote Table", "Quote_Numb er=" & txtQuoteNumber)

Me.txtCustomerN ame = DLookup("Dealer _Name", "Dealers Table", "Dealer_Number= " & txtDealerNumber )

I have a problem with the second DLOOKUP function because I dont think it may be possible to fill out multiple text boxes using multiple Dlookup commands. I have all of this running off a Command Button. The first part works fine It will get me my dealer number from my Quote table but the next few I am going to have to refrence from a different table (Dealers Table) And soemthing it not working.. Im trying to autopopulate
Dealer Address
Dealer City
Dealer State
Dealer zip
Dealer phone
Dealer Contact

All refrenced off of the Dealer Number that I had retrieved from the last DLookup
and now Dealers Table
Any suggestions?

String(text) values need to be enclosed in single quotes as follows:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim QuoteNumber As String
  3.    QuoteNumber = Me.txtQuoteNumber
  4.    Me.txtDealerNumber = DLookup("Dealer_Number", "Quote Table", "Quote_Number='" & txtQuoteNumber & "'")
