Well first, DateDiff is a horrible way to calculate someone's actual age or years of service. That merely extracts the Year portion of both dates and subtracts. The correct way to do it is:
DateDiff("yyyy", [DOB], Date())+ Int( Format(Date(), "mmdd") < Format( [DOB], "mmdd") )
The second one is close. Why did you remove the quotes around Jim Wagner? Try this:
=DLookUp("[Employees Years of Service]","qryYearsOfService","FullName = 'Jim Wagner'")

I am trying to do a dlookup on a form and have come to a head and a wall. I have a query Named qryYearsOfService. The query calculates the years of service. But the form gave me a #Name? error so I tried it another way and the next expression gave me an gets a #Error error. I must be missing something so simple here. Any help will be of great assistance to me.
SELECT tblInformation.FullName, tblInformation.DOB, DateDiff("yyyy",[tblInformation]![DOB],Now()) AS [Age of Employee], tblInformation.YearsOfServiceDate, DateDiff("yyyy",[tblInformation]![YearsOfServiceDate],Now()) AS [Years Worked], [Age of Employee]+[Years Worked] AS [Employees Years of Service]
On the form I have several text boxes that neither work.
Text Boxes on form
this onea #Name? error
=DLookUp(["Employees Years of Service"]!["qryYearsOfService"],"FullName = 'Jim Wagner'")
This one gets a #Error error
=DLookUp("[Employees Years of Service]","qryYearsOfService","FullName = Jim Wagner")
