update query - trouble with recordset

In the query below I am getting the error "method or data member not found"  for rs.NegociatedRate.

What am I doing wrong?

    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim RcdSet As DAO.Recordset
    Dim sqlFP As String
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    sqlFP = "Select * From tblTranslationContractPurchases where trad_commandesID=" & Me![trad_commandesID]
    Set RcdSet = db.OpenRecordset(sqlFP, dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)
    
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    Dim sqlOption As String
    sqlOption = "Select * From tbltrad_commandes_FPdetails where trad_commandesID=" & Me![trad_commandesID] & _
    "AND OptionSelected=1"
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(sqlOption, dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)
    
    
        If RcdSet.RecordCount = 0 Then
        'can't find proposal. need to do an append
        
        ElseIf RcdSet.RecordCount = 1 Then
            If rs.RecordCount = 0 Then
            MsgBox "You need to choose the number of words."
            ElseIf rs.RecordCount = 1 Then
            rs.MoveFirst
            DoCmd.SetWarnings False
            Dim strSQL As String
            strSQL = "Update tblTranslationContractPurchases set OrderDate = Now()," & _
here ====>>>            "NegociatedRate = " & rs.NegociatedRate & _
            ",ContractPrice = " & rs.ContractPrice & _
            ",ContractQuantity = " & rs.ContractQuantity & _
            ",FPEstimateStatus = 2 " & _
            "where tblTranslationContractPurchases.trad_commandesID = " & Me.trad_commandesID
            DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL
            DoCmd.SetWarnings True
            Else
            MsgBox "You need to choose the number of words. Only one option at a time."
            End If
        End If
    
    RcdSet.Close
    Set RcdSet = Nothing

Check your spelling and use ! Instead of .  For fieldnames.

ok, got it.

I'm a little confused as to when to use . and when to use !

both answers are right. First right answer or split?

mbizupCommented:
Use . for methods such as Update, MoveNext, etc and properties such as .NoMatch, etc.

Use ! for fieldnames, or the alternate syntax rs("FieldName")


>>> First right answer or split?

Our answers were almost at the same time.  A split is good with me.
