    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....

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
