I am trying to write an update query but I can't get the initial select query right.  I am hoping I am making this more difficult than it needs to be but I am stuck.

I have two tables - Temp (shortened for here) and History.  They have all the same fields (I perform calculations in temp before appending it to history) and the link is ticker.  I need to write a query to return values where ticker in the two tables is equal,  quarter from history references the field on a form, and category from one table does not equal category from the other.

In other words, I want the values where
History.Ticker
History.Quarter (Form!Front!PreviousQuarter)
History.Category
is compared to
Temp.Ticker
Temp.Category
and values where the category is different will be returned.
