I have a form named frmDocs.  On the form is a field named "txtEmail".  The value of the field came from a query using tblContacts.

When the user changes the populated value in the field I want to update the field in tblContacts named txtEmail to be what the user changed it to by clicking a command button named cmdUpdateEmail.

What would the onclick event be for the command button?

Something like this (with your own names):

dim s as string
s = "UPDATE tblContacts SET txtEmail = '" & Me.txtEmail & "' WHERE ContactID = " & Me.ContactID
currentdb.execute s, dbfailonerror
