Simple Update Query

I need to write an update query for microsoft access that will do the following:

If a string of text in column A does not contain the letter 'E' anywhere in that string, then the fields in Columns B, C, and D will all be updated to isnull.

Its that simple.  Thank you for your help.

This almost sounds like homework. If so, we can probably give you some guidance.  What did you come up with so far?

Not homework.  I figured out how to update the table prior to your answer and I did not have a chance to delete the question.  But thank you for your response.

Thanks.

Ron,

The thought actually crossed my mind too...

But the question history made me think otherwise.  And that's what a lot of my own questions sound like for confidentiality.

mkobey,

Thanks for clarifying.

My access skills are light, and this is the first Time i have used the program in several years.  I jumped the gun at asking a simple question before doing my own research.

Thanks

Miriam, that's a good idea to look at the question history. I'll keep that in mind.  Although, that's going to give me less time to beat you to an answer :)

mkobey, I'm glad you figured it out.
