I have this afterupdate event on a checkbox on a form.  It is an unbound form.

Private Sub chkbxReturned_AfterUpdate()
    Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
    Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblImportRecords")
        RS.Edit
        RS!Returned = Me.chkboxReturned
        RS.Update
    End If
End Sub

But I don't know how to get code in here to tell it which record to update.  The selected record is in the combobox named cboReturned and the key field is ID in the table tblImportRecords.

Private Sub chkbxReturned_AfterUpdate()

currentdb.execute "Update  tblImportRecords set Returned = " & Me.chkboxReturned & " Where ID=" & me.cboReturned , dbfailonerror


End sub

or this

Private Sub chkbxReturned_AfterUpdate()
    Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
    Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("Select * from tblImportRecords Where ID=" & me.cboReturned)

if RS.EOF then exit sub

        RS.Edit
        RS!Returned = Me.chkboxReturned
        RS.Update
    End If
RS.Close
End Sub

End Sub

Open in new window

if your db-field is a string type, to pass the value into the field without errors use something like this (quoted):
 CurrentDb.Execute "UPDATE tblImportRecords SET yourField = '" & replace(yourStringValue, "'", "''") & "' WHERE ID = " & Me.cboReturned & ""

Open in new window
