The first thing that comes to mind is that you may have SET EXACT set to ON. If your RES_CODE is 10 characters long and you're SEEKing with an ALLTRIM(), then you are most likely SEEKing with a string that is LESS than 10 characters, and with SET EXACT ON, the SEEK will not be successful.

Either SET EXACT OFF or else do a SEEK PADR(ALLTRIM(THISFORM.Text1.Value),LEN(Res_Code)) or something similar to make sure your SEEK string is the same size as the Res_Code.

I would also suggest putting your code into the Valid() as opposed to the LostFocus().
