    Hi All,

    I have a form that is used to record gas/electric meter readings for a
    caravan park. I need to display the previous readings on the same form.

    I have a query called QRY_PreviousReadings that gets the previous readings
    as follows:
    SELECT TOP 1 TBL_Readings.idInvoice, TBL_Readings.Electric_Reading,
    TBL_Readings.Gas_Reading, TBL_Allocations.idAllocation
    FROM TBL_Parks INNER JOIN (((TBL_Customers INNER JOIN TBL_Allocations ON
    TBL_Customers.IDCustomer = TBL_Allocations.CustomerID) LEFT JOIN
    TBL_Readings ON TBL_Allocations.idAllocation = TBL_Readings.AllocationID)
    INNER JOIN TBL_Pitches ON TBL_Allocations.PitchID = TBL_Pitches.idPitch) ON
    TBL_Parks.idPark = TBL_Pitches.ParkID
    ORDER BY TBL_Readings.idInvoice DESC;

    Note that the query when run with a where clause matching the DLookup filter
    returns the expected values.

    I've then set the control source of my previous readings field to this:
    =DLookUp("[gas_reading]","QRY_PreviousReadings","[idAllocation] = " &
    Which returns nothing!

    I've also tried this:
    =DLookUp("[gas_reading]","QRY_PreviousReadings","[idAllocation] = " &
    Which returns #Name?

    Note that me.idAllocation refers to a form field which has the current
    IDallocation - This stays the same for the duration of the persons stay on
    the park.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Many Thanks,

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!
