Hello,

I have an access file that I have to manually adjust.  I would like to create a macros that automates the changes.
The access file has 7 columns
I need to make changes to column 1 depending on the information of column two.
Then I need to make changes to Column 2 depending on the information in column one.

How can I go about this?

Thank you

Yes, sorry.

If the rows in column one say the data below than column two gets changed to this

column 1                      Column 2
test                                   T
test2                                 T2
data                                  D
data2                                D2

If the rows in column one say test then change column two to T.
If the rows in column one say test1 then change column two to T1
Etc...

But there can be about 15 different criteria.

OK, that is changing column 2 based on column 1.  What about your first requirement, change column 1 based on column 2?

It might be easiest in the instance above to make a table of possible values in column 1 and desired values in column 2. Then join that lookup table to your table, and do an update query.

With the data you posted, at its most simplistic,
UPDATE tblColumns SET tblColumns.Col2 = UCase(Left([col1],1)) & IIf(IsNumeric(Right([col1],1)),Right([col1],1),"");

where the table is named tblColumns
the two fields are named col and col2
Col2 is updated to the leftmost value of col2 and, if the rightmost value of col1 is a number, that number.
