do u get an error ?
is tbl_Deals deff not readonly ?

open your form and select the record

hit Ctrl+G to open the immedidate window

paste in
? Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name]
and hit return
do u get a value ?

do the same for Me!Deal_Rec_ID


if u get values paste

? UPDATE tbl_Deals SET Legal_Name=Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name] WHERE Deal_Rec_ID=Me!Deal_Rec_ID
into the immediate and use the result as the SQL for a new query - does the query run ?

try

"UPDATE tbl_Deals SET Legal_Name= " & chr(34) & Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name] & chr(34) & " WHERE Deal_Rec_ID=Me!Deal_Rec_ID


if deal_rec is not numeric type then wrap that in chr(34) also

I put this on the form open event:  The customer form is already open.

CurrentDb.Execute UPDATE tbl_Deals SET Legal_Name=Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name] WHERE Deal_Rec_ID=Me!Deal_Rec_ID"

should it be

currentdb.execute "UPDATE tbl_Deals SET Legal_Name= " & chr(34) & Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name] & chr(34) & " WHERE Deal_Rec_ID=" & Me!Deal_Rec_ID"


are u sure u are reading correct parameters ?

the on open may fire before the parameters have had a chance to pick their values


firstly get it to compile

then open the form and past
 ? "UPDATE tbl_Deals SET Legal_Name= " & chr(34) & Forms![frm_Customer]![Legal_Name] & chr(34) & " WHERE Deal_Rec_ID=" & Me!Deal_Rec_ID"

into the immediate and hit enter - u should get the actual SQL being run by jet
