Is there a more efficient way to write the following SQL statement?

I am developing an Access applicatiion using Access 2003 with an MDB type file.

I have a SQL statement that is running inefficiently as follows:

update tblBanks
inner join tblBanksReptNameCurr
On tblBanks.RptID=tblBanksReptNameCurr.[RPT ID]
set tblBanks.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB] = tblBanksReptNameCurr.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB]  AND
tblBanks.CURRENCY = tblBanksReptNameCurr.CURRENCY

Is there a better way to create this SQL statement?

i wonder if you were able to run the update query that you have...

you don't need the "AND" on this line

set tblBanks.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB] = tblBanksReptNameCurr.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB] AND
tblBanks.CURRENCY = tblBanksReptNameCurr.CURRENCY



update tblBanks
inner join tblBanksReptNameCurr
On tblBanks.RptID=tblBanksReptNameCurr.[RPT ID]
set tblBanks.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB] = tblBanksReptNameCurr.[SENIOR MANAGEMENT TAB] ,
tblBanks.CURRENCY = tblBanksReptNameCurr.CURRENCY

Hi,

SQL is fine but you should make sure you have indexes set on fields tblBanks.RptID and tblBanksReptNameCurr.[RPT ID] and make sure both thable have primary keys.
Also, save the SQL statement as a query and run the query.

That should speed it up.

Regards,

Bill
