You'll need to provide some more specifics. However, if you want to change a particular field in a particular table, there are two ways to do this, one is by using VBA to call a SQL UPDATE command, such as:

DoCmd.RunSQL "UPDATE TABLE yourTable  SET someField=someValue WHERE someOtherField=someOtherValue "

Open in new window


That is probably the easiest depending on what you are doing. However, you can also use VBA directly by creating a connection to the database's record set. Check out these links for two examples on how to do this:

Finally, if you have an open form that is linked to a particular table, you can also just access the controls (like a Textbox, etc) on the form by using the syntax:

Forms!yourFormName.yourFormControl.Value = yourValue

Open in new window


(note, everything with "some" or "your" in the name is something that you name. The rest if part of the code syntax)
