OK, we need the information clarified differently.

Firstly give the metadata for each table involved. Here is an example of how to post table MetaData :
Table Name=tblBookings
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Field; Type; IndexInfo
  2. Field; Type; IndexInfo
  3. StudentID; Autonumber; PK
  4. Family; String; FK
  5. Name; String
  6. University; String; FK
  7. Mark; Numeric
  8. LastAttendance; Date/Time
Next we need the SQL of the query that this form is build on?

Thirdly, do you just want to find an existing record when the user enters the number? If so have a look at this tutorial ...

Below is the sql statement of the query.
SELECT Material.MaterialID, Lookup.Technician, Lookup.[Material #], Lookup.Customer, Lookup.Product, Lookup.[Batch#], Lookup.KGs, Lookup.[Blender#], Lookup.[Test Lab 1], Lookup.[Test Lab 2], Lookup.[Time In], Lookup.[Date In], Lookup.[Time Out], Lookup.DateOut, Lookup.Comments, Lookup.Allergens, Lookup.Kosher, Lookup.USDA, Lookup.Sieves, Lookup.APC, Lookup.Coliform, Lookup.[E-Coli], Lookup.Staph, Lookup.[Salmonella-25g], Lookup.[Salmonella-375g-1], Lookup.[Salmonella-375g-2], Lookup.[Yeast-Mold], Lookup.Listeria, Lookup.[Thermophillic Spores], Lookup.[Fecal Enterococci], Lookup.[Staph Enterotoxin], Lookup.[CEM Fat], Lookup.[Karl Fischer Moisture], Lookup.TBHQ, Lookup.BHT, Lookup.[MSG%], Lookup.[Acidic Acid%], Lookup.[Citric Acid %], Lookup.[BHT%], Lookup.[TBHQ%], Lookup.pH, Lookup.[Extraneous Matter], Lookup.GMO, Lookup.[Total Butterfat], Lookup.[Total Fat], Lookup.[Scoville Heat Units], Lookup.[Total Sugar], Lookup.Protien, Lookup.Sulfites, Lookup.[Vitamin A], Lookup.[Vitamin C]
FROM Material INNER JOIN Lookup ON Material.MaterialID = Lookup.[Material #];

The data definitions are listed above with Table Name, Field Name and Key Definition.

I hope this is enough information.
