That would be an update query...

Update yourtable
Set fld1 = null, fld2= null etc

You could try a "set column_name = null" for all the columns except for the one that you do not wish to blank?

update tablename
set tablename_field2 -= null,
     tablename_field3 = null,
..... and so on blanking all the columns with nulls except for the one you will not list here.  

Tablename being your table's name and tablename_field# being the columns you wish to blank.. just leave the one you do not want blanked alone.  

Hope this helps!

I figured it out.  I can do the update through design view.

The original question didn't specify design or sql view.

The sql generated by this query created in design view is going to be basically what we responded with here.
