Record exists?

I'm working with a Visual Basic app that needs to update data in an Access database.  Everything works fine, but how do you do a routine like the following:

If a record exists then
    update a field in the existing record
Else
    insert record with appropriate data
End If

By the way, I'm not using the Data control - I just want to use statements through the Jet engine.

Thanks
