MS Access Report - Dlookup multiple criteria

P: 3
I have a database that tracks drawings issued to the contractor. I have created a report listing all drawings issued per consultant per contract. This report includes a Dlookup formula that references a query which counts the number of drawings issued.

I have been using the below formula with success for about a year now:

=DLookUp("CountOfDrawingNo","QRYDwgCount","IssuedB y = '" & [IssuedBy] & "'")

The problem I am now getting is that a new contract has been created however a consultant used on a prior contract is also issuing drawings for this new contract. So the above formula is bringing forward the first instance/contract that this consultant issued drawings for as opposed to the current job. I therefore need to add a second criteria to the formula but I keep getting either #Error as the result or nothing at all.

I really need help. This is what I have

=DLookUp("CountOfDrawingNo","QRYDwgCount","[IssuedBy] = '" & [IssuedBy] & "' And [ContractName]=" & [ContractName] & "'")

Iím getting an #Error result for this formula.
The fields in the QRYDwgCount are:


Several consultants can issued drawings for one contract. It is only now that I have a consultant in twice on two different contracts that I have encountered a problem.

Really really need help figuring this out and any assistance offered is appreciated.

Please use CODE tags when posting code as it is required by site rules and it makes the code a bunch easier to read.

It looks like you forgot the single quote before your contract name value. Try the following:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. =DLookUp("CountOfDrawingNo","QRYDwgCount","[IssuedBy] = '" & [IssuedBy] & "' And [ContractName]= '" & [ContractName] & "'")

Thanks! Worked.

Sorry about the Code tags - not sure how to do that as I'm still somewhat of a novice.

Thanks again.

No problem.

For code tags, just click the [CODE/] button at the top of your posting box and place your code between the opening and closing tags.
