How change value in a table when change value in a form not bound to that table

I have a form which is bound to a table, "tblJobScheduleHeader".  On this form is a field named "txtJobN" and the control source for this field is JobN which is a number field.  The form, by default, opens with txtJobN with 99999999 as the data in that field.  When the user changes this number to another number, say 123456, I want the following to happen...

Find, in "tblOutside Purchase", any record with 99999999 in the field JobN and change it to 123456.

How can this be done.  I would like it to happen in an afterupdate event of the field "txtJobN"
