You need to join the two tables together via a common key, then you can update a field in the first table with the value from a field in the second table.  In the query designer you would put the field in the 2nd table with square brackets around it in the update section for the first field.

UPDATE Table1 INNER JOIN Table2 ON Table1.ID = Table2.ID SET Table2.tname = [Table1]![tname], Table2.tmodel = [Table1]![tmodel], Table2.qty = [Table1]![qty], Table2.tdate = [Table1]![tdate];
