Hi,

Looks like a pretty harmless query, but I get 'Operation must use an updateable query' message.

UPDATE tblUpdateDetailWrk INNER JOIN IOT_Data ON (tblUpdateDetailWrk.ITEM=IOT_Data.PART) AND (tblUpdateDetailWrk.STNO=IOT_Data.LOCATION) AND (tblUpdateDetailWrk.LINE=IOT_Data.MFG) SET tblUpdateDetailWrk.IOTTrigger = IOT_Data.WEIGHTED_COVERAGE
WHERE (((IOT_Data.WEIGHTED_COVERAGE) Is Not Null) And ((tblUpdateDetailWrk.Update)=Forms!DataLoadForm!UpdateName));

The IOT_Data table is an ODBC linked table in Oracle, but this is working in many other places...

Looks like you are trying to update two tables at once, which I beleive is not allowed....

I'm only trying to update one field: tblUpdateDetailWrk.IOTTrigger and setting it to IOT_Data.WEIGHTED_COVERAGE... what am I doing wrong or what am I doing that makes it appear I'm trying to update two tables?

There are a number of reasons why a query might not be updatable.  Check out Allen's list at: http://www.allenbrowne.com/ser-61.html

The one that is probably most likely is:

The fields in a JOIN are not indexed correctly (there is no PK or unique index on the JOINed fields.

Attach a database with the 2 tables and query. Import the linked table and make sure the issue is still holding.

If you could post the two tables, as hnasr suggested, we might be able to provide a better solution.
