Microsoft Access is a powerful data-handling package.
It has many strong features that make data retrieval simple. One of them is the DLookup function. DLookup is a function used to retrieve a value of a particular field from a domain. A domain can be a specified set of records from a table, query or SQL expression. You can use the DLookup function to get information that is not a part of the underlying record set.
You can use DLookup to get the Student name from another table. It may be a table or query field, or an expression based on that field. It can be a table name or a query name. It is a string expression for restricting the range of data on which the DLookup function is performed. The DLookup function returns one value from a single field.
If there are no record that satisfies the criteria, or if the domain is empty, DLookup returns a Null. The criteria should be judiciously defined so that the DLookup function returns a unique field.
If the criteria fields are text, enclose the text in single quotation marks. For evaluating date or time values, enclose the date or time value in number signs. Let us see what happens if the DLookup function were to be given without the criteria.
You can use variables in the criteria too. To specify textual criteria that comes from a field on a form include the single quotes. You can also use it in the Criteria field of the query builder. However, it is more efficient to create a new query containing fields of both the tables and use it as a base record set.
DLookup only selects the saved records of the domain. Any unsaved record is not included in the domain.Dec 08, · Access VBA Form - Find if Record Exists. Microsoft Access / VBA Forums on Bytes. 6. How do I convert an Access database to/from another version?
