I have two tables.  I have created a query creating a dataset with one field from Table A which is not updateable and several fields from Table B which I would like to update by entering data directly into the fields while I am viewing the dataset.  Is there a way to do this?

Open the query in design view.
Bring up the Property sheet
Set the Recordset Type property to 'Dynaset (Inconsistent Updates)'

You are welcome.

Please ... with that setting I showed you ... be VERY careful - and be sure that you are updating exactly the fields you want - not for example, updating the One side of a one to Many relationship that has Cascade Updates enabled - etc.

Thanks for the further information.  I will only be updating the many side of the relationship and I will be testing it for a time before it goes live.  Thanks again.
