update query problem

access 2003
What I need:  Update query from query results

I have a query:
SELECT SalesStatus_Updated_View.material_no, SalesStatus_Updated_View.sales_status AS NewSalesStatus, tblCoreSkuInformationST.SPIN AS OldSalesStatus, SalesStatus_Updated_View.update_sales_status_date
FROM SalesStatus_Updated_View INNER JOIN tblCoreSkuInformationST ON SalesStatus_Updated_View.material_no = tblCoreSkuInformationST.ITEM;

from the results of this query.

I need to update the field in  "tblCoreSkuInformationST.SPIN AS OldSalesStatus,"  to the
data in "SalesStatus_Updated_View.sales_status AS NewSalesStatus"

After backing up your data, and assuming that Assuming [Material_No] and [Item] are text, try:

UPDATE tblCoreSkuInformationST
Set tblCoreSkuInformationST.SPIN = DLOOKUP("sales_status", "SalesStatus_Updated_View", "[Material_No] = " & chr$(34) & [Item] & chr$(34))
