Hi Prasad

define your Variable
Open a recordset based on your query
assign the value of voltage to your variable
close and destroy the recordset

Most of us are not going to provide a coded solution until you've posted your efforts. I'm sure that you'll understand why once you've read thru: http://bytes.com/topic/access/answer...-posting-forum

It is all too easy to have students ask questions and get the answers to their homework.

John gave you a very good outline for solving this using a record set. This would be a good method if the database is large.

However, for smaller databases, and simple code, returning only one or two lookup-ed values I would suggest the DLOOKUP method. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/208786
Yes... it's for 2000 however the syntax didn't change.

Please take a hand at writing the code...
Once you have it... post it here to let us know if you've succeded or you need more help.
