You'll need to run a query here. Something like

SELECT 'CustomerID' & CustomerID, 'StoeID' & StoreID,......
FROM yourtable

you can use string concatenation

example
select
'[customerID].&[' + convert(nvarchar,CustomerID) + ']' as customerID,
'[storeID].&[' + convert(nvarchar,storeID) + ']' as storeID,
...etc ...
FROM tablename

Make sure ALL of the fields you are updating are defined as text in the underlying table and Try this in VBA:

Sub DoThis()
dim rs as DAO.recordset
SET rs = CurrentDB.OpenRecordset
if rs.recordcount = 0 then Exit Sub
do until rs.eof
    rs.Edit
    rs!CustomerID = "[CustomerID].[" & CustomerID & "]"
    rs!StoreID= "[StoreID].[" & StoreID & "]"
    rs!AccountNumber = "[AccountNumber].[" & AccountNumber & "]"
    rs.Update
    rs.MoveNext
Loop
rs.close
set rs = nothing

Open in new window

ZURINET,

Did you see the earlier post from 'sognoct' at http:#a38809246 ?

Unless I'm missing something,  the answer you accepted from harshada_sonawane is identical to that earlier response...
