SQL Update Query with Summed Field VB6 MS Access 2003

Hello experts.  I am working with VB6 and MS Access 2003.  This code produces the error ‘syntax error in query expression’.   I’d greatly appreciate any advice.      

Dim strSQL6 As String
strSQL6 = "Update [ProjOverview] Set [Status] = 'Complete' and [Complete] = Now AND ([TotalServicesAct] = [TotalServicesEst]) Where (([Status] = 'Canceled') AND ([TotalCost] > 0) AND (SELECT Sum[JONProjJoins].[Amount]) AS [SumOfAmount], [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] FROM [ProjOverview] LEFT JOIN [JONProjJoins] ON [ProjOverview].[IDNmbr] = [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] GROUP BY [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] Having Sum([JONProjJoins].[Amount]) < 0 Or Sum(JONProjJoins.Amount) = 0"
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL6

The goal of the update query is:
Update ProjOverview table
Set
1)      Status = Complete
2)      Complete = Now
3)      TotalServicesAct = TotalServicesEst
Where
1)      Status = Canceled      
2)      TotalCost > 0  
3)      LinkedFunds < = 0
The LinkedFunds field is a summed amount from JONProjJoins table

the structure is using "," not "AND" between set elements

Update [ProjOverview]
Set
[Status] = 'Complete',
[Complete] = Now ,
[TotalServicesAct] = [TotalServicesEst]
...

I am not sure but this query is correct (may not be logically correct ;)
Update [ProjOverview] 
Set 
[Status] = 'Complete',
[Complete] = Now ,
[TotalServicesAct] = [TotalServicesEst]
Where (
([Status] = 'Canceled') AND 
([TotalCost] > 0) AND 
(
(
SELECT Sum([JONProjJoins].[Amount])
FROM [ProjOverview]
LEFT JOIN [JONProjJoins] ON [ProjOverview].[IDNmbr] = [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] 
GROUP BY [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] 
) <= 0
)
)

or maybe you are looking for this
Update [ProjOverview] 
Set 
[Status] = 'Complete',
[Complete] = Now ,
[TotalServicesAct] = [TotalServicesEst]
Where (
([Status] = 'Canceled') AND 
([TotalCost] > 0) AND 
([ProjID] in (SELECT PrjID FROM [ProjOverview] LEFT JOIN [JONProjJoins] ON [ProjOverview].[IDNmbr] = [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] GROUP BY [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] having Sum([JONProjJoins].[Amount]) <= 0 ))
)

Thank you for your comment -- this is my first experience using the update query.  I've made the structure correction.   I am still receiving the syntax error.  I believe it has to do with the WHERE portion of the statement.

Also, your inner Select
  a).  does not  have a closing paren
  b).  is an incomplete expression:  should probably be written AND EXISTS (Select ... )
  c).  needs to be correlated back to [ProjOverview] so that it returns a single value per row of [ProjOverview].  You can accomplish that with a WHERE clause:
    AND EXISTS (Select ... WHERE ...)

     or better yet, move that inner select from the WHERE Clause to the JOIN Clause

      ... JOIN (SELECT Sum[JONProjJoins].[Amount]) AS [SumOfAmount], [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] FROM [ProjOverview] GROUP BY [JONProjJoins].[ProjID] ) as X
 ON  X.proj_id = [ProjOverview].[IDNmbr]

      ...
      WHERE x.SumOfAmount >= 0
