    hi to all.... I'm new in programming and I have a question....

    I need to bring the urgency id from the urgency word. I have a table named:
    urgency where I have id_urgency and desc_urgency.

    I have a word doc where I look for the urgency name and I need to have in my
    DB the id, not the word:

    ie: in my word doc I have
    Urgency: average

    in my urgency table, I have:
    id: 1 --- desc: average
    id:2 ---- desc: low

    I need to get the id = 1 in my DB...

    I have this code

    Dim lngUrgency As Long

    strUrgency = oDoc.FormFields("Dropdown5").Result
    lngUrgency = DLookup("[id_urgency]", "Urgency", "[desc_urgency]" =
    strUrgency)

    between other things.. but when I run it, lngUrgency brings me NULL.... does
    someone know what am I doing wrong????

    thank you in advance....
