I am trying to use an update query but cannot get the syntax correct.  Please advise.  This is obviously my hardest thing to grasp (SQL Query syntax with variables).

For Each varItm In Me.lstVendorPartsList.ItemsSelected
        varPartID = Me.lstVendorPartsList.ItemData(varItm)

            DoCmd.SetWarnings False
            Dim sqlStr As String
            sqlStr = "UPDATE " & varTmpTableName1 & " SET " & varTmpTableName1 & ".[qtytopurchase] = " & varUpdateQty _
                        & " WHERE (((" & varTmpTableName1 & ".PartID)= " & varPartID

                       
                 'MsgBox sqlStr
                DoCmd.RunSQL sqlStr
            DoCmd.SetWarnings True
    Next

What are data types of varUpdateQTY, carPartID?
You need not be so explicit in naming the table every time you mention a field in the table.
sqlStr = "UPDATE " & varTmpTableName1 & " SET  [qtytopurchase] = " & varUpdateQty _
                        & " WHERE  PartID)= " & varPartID
