Hi,

I have an update query which specifies two accounts which i want to delete from another table if it matches this citeria

IIf(Mid([TRANS_REF],3,1)<>'D',[TRANS_REF])

I am making this in the design view, can i update into the same table i am using for the criteria, is that possible?

So i have one table and am saying, if any entries match this criteria, delete them

Thanks
Seamus

If you're asking if you can do an UPDATE and DELETE in the same query then no, you cannot. You must run 2 queries - one to update, and a second to delete.
