This isn't enough info. Can you describe the above and tell us the tables and relationships that you're using?

But let me guess. On a TimeSheet form (based on an Expenses table?), the user selects their ID (using a popup value list of IDs and Names from the Staff table). When they click Save (I suppose they were in a modal pop-up window to enter the timesheet record), you want to show a custom dialog.

Well, since Timesheets are related to Staff by StaffID, use this relationship in the dialog.

"Thanks for inputting your time " & Timesheet_Staff::FullName & ". We appreciate it."
