I've adapted this piece of code below, I think its working, but the NewID and OldID strings are not operating in the update query SQL i.e.  Access comes up with 'enter parameter values' for both  NewID and OldID

Any ideas? I've experimented with a few & and " in places but can't get it to work
Public Sub XXXCheckFieldsXXX()
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, rs1 As DAO.Recordset
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, fldArr()
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Determinants")  ' change the name of the source table
Set rs1 = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Data_Intermediate") 'change name of destination table
    Dim NewID As String
    Dim OldID As String
  Dim strDataUpdate As String
    strDataUpdate = "UPDATE Data_Intermediate " & _
                    "SET DeterminantID = NewID " & _
                    "WHERE DeterminantID = OldID;"
If rs.EOF Or rs.BOF Then
    MsgBox "no records"
    Exit Sub
End If
'For each Data_intermediate value
Do While Not rs1.EOF
OldID = rs1.Fields("DeterminantID").Value
    'For each Determinant tbl value
    Do While Not rs.EOF
        NewID = rs.Fields("DeterminantID").Value
        If rs1.Fields("DeterminantID").Value = rs.Fields("EA Code").Value Then
        'rs1.Fields("DeterminantID").Value = rs.Fields("DeterminantID").Value
        DoCmd.RunSQL strDataUpdate
       End If
End Sub
