    Dlookup in access report

    Hi all,

    I'm dealing with this crazy database at work and I have no idea how to solve this problem:

    One of the reports required is a weekly forecast. Inside the report I created several boxes to show the week end dates using these commands =DateAdd("d",0,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]) , =DateAdd("d",7,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]), =DateAdd("d",14,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]), etc until =DateAdd("d",357,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]).

    What I'd like to do is lookup the date inserted in order to show the number of working hours for a week.

    In a table called "weekly calendar" I stored some data in this way:

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    I tried to use the below formula in the same report:
    =DLookUp("wca_hours","weekly calendar","wca_weekd= #Label178#") #where Label178 is supposed to be the name of the box with =DateAdd("d",0,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]) as Control Source

    In other words what I'd like to achieve is: If the user insert "20/01/2017" the report should show 36

    Well... it doesn't work LOL. I get a #Error message!

    I'm not good with Access at all and I just thought that perhaps there is a good soul in this forum able to help me :-D

    Thanks all!!

    You shouldn't need Dlookup in a report.
    The query should provide all data.

    Hi ranman256,

    I'm not good at all with Access and I thought about it. To be honest I have no idea how to achieve it though considering that this command =DateAdd("d",0,[Enter Starting Month dd/mm/yy]) force me to "insert" a date before to run the report and not in a query...
