Good afternoon Experts,

I am working with MS Access 2000.

There is a field called Requestors in a table called Tbl_Credit_Requests.
I need to change the values in this field from the user id to the persons first and last name.
The first and last name will come from Tbl_Employee.
Below is my sql:

Update Tbl_Credit_Requests

Set Requestor = (SELECT E.F_Name  & " " &  E.L_Name As Requestor2 FROM Tbl_Emp AS E where E.UserId = Tbl_Credit_Requests.Requestor)

Unfortunately, I get an error that states, “Operation must use an updateable query.”

Any advise is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi TylerDerden,

 Update Tbl_Credit_Requests inner join  Tbl_Emp as E
On  E.UserId = Tbl_Credit_Requests.Requestor
Set Requestor =E.F_Name  & " " &  E.L_Name

I am assuming that you have ensured that the UserID field is a text field of sufficient size to hold the name.
