I don't know why my following update query doesn't work.  I attach my access database with the data table and the query.  Thank!


UPDATE MAFs_20_archive AS L INNER JOIN MAFs_20_archive AS H ON (L.State=H.State) AND (L.Segment=H.Segment) AND (L.Favorability=H.Favorability) AND (L.Tier=H.Tier) SET L.Exp_Date = H.Eff_Date-1, L.Row_Expir_Date = Null
WHERE (((L.Row_Expir_Date) Is Not Null) AND ((L.Eff_Date)<H.Eff_Date) AND ((H.Eff_Date)=DMin("Eff_Date","MAFs_20_archive","State=' " & L.State & " ' And Segment=' " & L.Segment & " ' AND Favorability=' " & L.Favorability & " ' AND Tier=' " & L.Tier & " ' AND Eff_Date>#" & L.Eff_Date & "#")));

You will have to explain what is not working - what are you trying to do that your query is not doing, and what are you expecting the result to be .

could it be that you have a space in between single quote and double quote in your sql statement


AND ((H.Eff_Date)=DMin("Eff_Date","MAFs_20_archive","State=' " & L.State & " ' And Segment=' " & L.Segment & " ' AND Favorability=' " & L.Favorability & " ' AND Tier=' " & L.Tier & " ' AND

My purpose is that for the same record (same combined state, segment, favorability and tier), the expired date for the older effective date will be one day earlier then the newer effective date.  This query worked before.

Here is an example:
State      Segment      Favorability      Tier
NJ      Garage      Favorable                      2

current:
Eff_Date                      Exp_Date
6/15/2013      12/31/2080
6/16/2013      12/31/2080

After run query:      
Eff_Date                       Exp_Date
6/15/2013      6/15/2013
6/16/2013      12/31/2080
