    What is everything in your dlookup? 1st stab, your conditional looks faulty ... the invoice no is treating your column comparison(I assume ...) as a string literal ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...

    Try
    inv_no: DLookUp("invoice_no","qrylkupinv","tinvoice_no='" & me.tempinvoice_no & "'") <in form


    inv_no: DLookUp("invoice_no","qrylkupinv","tinvoice_no='" & [t empinvoice_no] & "'") <in Query can slow the query down heaps
    hope this help

    See clear as mud
