|Stuck with a Dlookup problem? Don't waste your time. Give us a call and we will solve the problem or there is no charge! $100 1/2 hour.
This example shows how you can use nested Dlookup functions to get nested table results in a relational hierarchy. What this example shows is multiple Dlookup functions within one.
Here are the tables in this example:
We will have a query based only on the M_Customer_Orders table:
SELECT M_Customer_Orders.Customer_ID, M_Customer_Orders.Product_ID,
The form design is as follows:
The control source compound dlookup code is much longer than can be displayed in design mode of the form. I use notepad to construct the code and the copy and paste it into the control source. Here is how the code looks when in notepad:
Dlookup("Org_ID","M_Customers","Customer_ID=" & nz(Customer_ID,0))))
You can see from the code that we work our way from left to right starting with the end result and working are way down to the ID field available to us on the form (Customer_ID). With the customer_ID we can obtain the Org_ID from the M_Customers table. Then, we get the Contact_Method_ID for that customer from the L_Orgs table. Easy isn't it! Below is the final result:
