Update multiple fields with inner select

Hello,

I'm wondering if its possible to extend the following query to include multiple set statements based on different where clauses in one query?

Is there an easier way than repeating this query?

UPDATE ProfileData, SummaryTable SET ProfileData.CarValueO1 = [Total]*[CarValue]
WHERE (((SummaryTable.CarType)="Sedan") AND ((SummaryTable.NumberDrivers)="NumberDrivers1") AND ((SummaryTable.NumberClaims)="NumberClaims1"));

Open in new window


Thanks

this should work better:
UPDATE ProfileData p
INNER JOIN SummaryTable  s
SET p.CarValueO1 = IIF( s.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers1" AND s.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims1") , [Total]*[CarValue] , CarValueO1 ), 
p.CarValueO2 = IIF( s.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers2" AND s.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims2") , [Total]*[CarValue] , CarValueO2 )
WHERE ((s.CarType)="Sedan");

I have described the options to do UPDATE WITH JOIN in this article:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/A_1517-UPDATES-with-JOIN-for-everybody.html
the ms access syntax is at the end, in the additional comments, so yes, it's possible

of course, you may need to combine that with IIF() expressions, but as your requirements is not 100% clear ...

Thanks for your response.

Please provide syntax the to:
SET ProfileData.CarValueO2 = [Total]*[CarValue]
WHERE (((SummaryTable.CarType)="Sedan") And ((SummaryTable.NumberDrivers)="NumberDrivers2") And ((SummaryTable.NumberClaims)="NumberClaims2"));

within the update query below.

UPDATE ProfileData, SummaryTable SET ProfileData.CarValueO1 = [Total]*[CarValue]
WHERE (((SummaryTable.CarType)="Sedan") And ((SummaryTable.NumberDrivers)="NumberDrivers1") And ((SummaryTable.NumberClaims)="NumberClaims1"));

I would go with something along like this (not tested):
UPDATE ProfileData, SummaryTable 
 SET ProfileData.CarValueO1 = IIF( AND( SummaryTable.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers1" ; SummaryTable.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims1") ; [Total]*[CarValue] ; CarValueO1 )
  , ProfileData.CarValueO2 = IIF( AND( SummaryTable.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers2" ; SummaryTable.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims2") ; [Total]*[CarValue] ; CarValueO2 )
WHERE ((SummaryTable.CarType)="Sedan") ;

I ran the query its says: syntax error missing operator in query expression 'IIF( AND ( SummaryTable.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers1"; SummaryTable.NumberClaims = "NumberClaims1"); [Total]*[CarValue];

I was unable to save the query because of the syntax error.  I've attached an example database.

I used ";" you may need to use "," for the arguments...

I replaced the semi-colons with commas no change.

I made the following change to the query although now it says syntax error in UPDATE statement.

UPDATE ProfileData, SummaryTable 
SET ProfileData.CarValueO1 = IIF( SummaryTable.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers1" AND SummaryTable.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims1") , [Total]*[CarValue] , CarValueO1 ), 
ProfileData.CarValueO2 = IIF( SummaryTable.NumberDrivers = "NumberDrivers2" AND SummaryTable.NumberClaims ="NumberClaims2") , [Total]*[CarValue] , CarValueO2 )
WHERE ((SummaryTable.CarType)="Sedan");
