Not sure exactly what you want.
Do you want to update all records in Table2 at once...
or
Update Table2 individually (when it's time to update)
?

Also, is there a reference field in table2 related to table1?  (relationship)?

Scott - next time, can you do better than 7 seconds to respond to my posting? :)

here is more on what i'm trying to do:

Users import an Excel file into Access on a daily basis.  I want to show stats on the main form that displays the last time the file was imported as well as the most recent order date.

So, I have tblOrders that is filled with orders including OrderDate and want to show when was the last order processed.

hope that makes sense.

Still fuzzy...
When you import from Excel- do you APPEND this data to an existing table in Access?
If so, you can create a field in the table with DEFAULT VALUE = DATE().  As each record is imported, this 'date' field will display the date it occurred.

In order to prevent a ton of questions and answers, can you attach your tables and let me review?

Scott-
Made some progress.  I've used DMax to get the MAX value of Register_Date from my order table.

UPDATE tblStats SET tblStats.RecentRegistration = DMax("Register_Date","tblImportedRegistrations"), tblStats.LastImported = Now();

I've updated the tblStats table with the correct values.  Now I want to display the two values on my switchboard form.

Thanks...sorry to be confusing.
