dlookup with a contains criteria?

Can a Dlookup command search for part of a field rather than the whole thing. EX.
Dlookup is RecipientX = DLookup("RecipientID", "MasterFeedData", "[Logins]=" & Me!JID)

jID input contains CITIGRPS

Currently dlookup looks for an exact match between Logins and JID. I want to change the Dlookup to look for partial matches in the Logins field if possible.

DLookup() with Date criteria

DLookup() with Date criteria Icon
I'm having trouble with DLookup() using dates as part of a multiple criteria. I'm using the following;

If IsNull(DLookup("ExchRate", "TBL_DDPExchRates", "CurID = " & Me.Combo4 & " AND ExchDate = #" & Me.ShipOBDate & "#")) And Me.Combo4 2 Then

It seems that if ShipOBDate is any date between the first and tenth of the month the DLookup fails to locate the appropriate record. I can't understand why as ShipOBDate and ExchDate areboth formatted as Short Date and ExchDate is being populated via an OpenArgs which is derived form the field ShipOBDate

Is the fact the the date is getting converted from a date to string and back to a date some how upsetting things

Numeric Criteria Expressions

Numeric Criteria Expressions Icon
To specify numeric criteria for an operation, you supply a numeric value as part of the string expression that forms the criteria argument.
Suppose that you are performing the DLookup function on an Employees table to find the last name of a particular employee, and you want to use a value from the EmployeeID field in the function's criteria argument.

Maybe there's a small nuance I'm missing when using DLookUp with a date as the criteria.
my DMax returns correctly
I do not get an error with my DLookup
BUt the DlookUp retuns the wrong value.

vMaxDate = DMax("[Version_Date]", "tblVersionInfo")
vlblVersion_Info = DLookup("[Version_ID]", "tblVersionInfo", "'[Version_date] = " & vMaxDate & "'")
Me.lblVersion_Info.Caption = vlblVersion_Info

But forgot it all, and I've entirely retaught myself vba in the last three days while trying to programme a database), and I'm trying to programme a fairly complex changelog database.

Anyway, when trying to create an issues registry I discovered a fairly major flaw in my programming in that a DLookup function was returning stuff for any record that fulfilled any one of the criteria, rather than just the one that fulfilled all of them.

Is there a way of doing this with the DLookup command, or do Ineed to try something else entirely?

I am using a dlookup to find a numeric value from a table, when I run the query I get the correct result but the format is text. The dlookup is:

Month: DLookUp("[Dim_Month]![Next_Month]","Dim_Month",[tbl_Data]![Dim_month]=[Dim_Month]![ID])

DLookup with Null criteria

DLookup with Null criteria Icon
But I'm running into this issue. I have a textbox with a control source as a DLookup. The recordset contains IDs from different tables, and I want the customer name to display in a textbox related to the customer id. but this is what I have/get

textbox = #Name? when CustID is null, using Nz and setting the textbox to an empty string if there was no Customer id

=IIF(IsNull(CustID).) and =IIF(Not IsNull(CustID). And still the textbox always turns up as #Name?

I tried to evaluate the code in vba and even when CustID is null, it still attempts to evaluate the DLookup instead of just giving me the appropriate value.

I realize that I can set the value of this textbox on Current event, or through VBA using simple If statement, but is there a solution where I can just set the controlsource in design to evaluate it?
