    Unanswered: How get values from one table to feed a form bound to another table

    This is going to get complicated I'm sure. But here goes. I have a table named tblPrices. I have another table named tblPartsMasters. Both of these tables have a field named "Part_No" which is the index field in both tables. Then I also have a form named frmPartsMasters which is bound to the table tblPartsMasters.

    When the form named frmPartsMasters is opened I want to have an oncurrent event that pulls data over from the table named tblPrices and feeds it into a field on the form named "txtEach_Price". The data I want to pull over from tblPrices is the field named "Each_Price". So I guess this is a DLookup function. However, certain criteria has to be met before the field named "txtEach_Price" can be populated.

    This criteria is that:
    a) A field named "Q1a" in tblPrices is null and also
    b) A field named "chkbxInclSC1" in tblPrices is false.

    Does anybody help me write this oncurrent event code?
