I *think* what I need is an update append query! - If a user clicks on a command button, I'd like a field in my table (called memotext) to be updated (i.e. be appended to) with the date, time, NT username and a string like "Customer report was printed".

I would agree with you..

  UPDATE TableName
  Set [MemoField] = ([MemoField] & vbcrlf & UserName & " - " & DateTime & " - Customer report was printed")
  WHERE ([PrimaryKeyField] = sPKVariableToIDThisRecord)

In addition you are making the edit in a manner consistant with how M$ has recommended,....One swipe edit.

Piece meal or typing edits to memo fields are more prone to corrupting the content of the memo field during edit.
