Make a backup first:

UPDATE tblLetterOfCredit INNER JOIN importFeb202011 ON tblLetterOfCredit.LCNo = importFeb202011.LCNo SET
tblLetterOfCredit.Amount = importFeb202011.USDEquivImport
WHERE tblLetterOfCredit.Amount <> importFeb202011.USDEquivImport;

GrayL:  that worked.  in the attached screen print, I have highlighted "UPDATE TO" and it makes more sense to me if it woudl say "UPDATE FROM".  Do you see how it could be confusing?  

Angel:  thanks for the link.  It was a little above my head though... i get lost with the explanations because i dont know a whole lot about access.  I only get by with copy and paste and understanding a little bit along the way ;)
