Dlookup error

I hope you can help me with this issue. I am trying to do a DLookup function
to look up the Quarterly cap value from the Quarterly Cap table where
Customer Name match the name in the form:

=DLookUp("[Quarterly Cap]![Quarterly Cap]","[Quarterly Cap]","[Quarterly
Cap]![Customer Name]= '" & [Customer Name] & "'")

I receive an error:


I try to get replace , with ; or | it doesn’t like it.
When I click the expression builder I got this DLookup («expr»| «domain»|
«criteria») it asks for pipe but not happy.

Since you specify the domain in the function, you need not specify it as part
of the other input variables, try:

=DLookUp("[Quarterly Cap]","[Quarterly Cap]","[Customer Name]= '" &
[Customer Name] & "'")

Did you name a field in your table the same as the table name? That's bad
practice.

I've not tested, but try replacing the bang (!) with a dot (.) like this:

=DLookUp("[Quarterly Cap].[Quarterly Cap]","[Quarterly Cap]","[Quarterly
Cap]![Customer Name]= '" & [Customer Name] & "'")
