I'm trying to use an update query to update the first occurence of the IDDCash field in the tblCumm from the [tblSumIDDTB]![IDDBalance].  Any Thoughts

UPDATE (tblAppropriation INNER JOIN tblCumm ON tblAppropriation.SF224Appropriation = tblCumm.SF224Appropriation) INNER JOIN tblSumIDDTB ON tblAppropriation.TBAppropration = tblSumIDDTB.Appropriation SET tblCumm.IDDCash = [tblSumIDDTB]![IDDBalance];

Or some other method of determining the FIRST record such as a date field where the minimum or maximum date is the first record

How can you use the PK to determine the record to update?

What does that mean when you look at the PKs?

Is it the minimum PK, maximum PK?
First is determined by the order the records are retrieved.

Your PK is an autonumber column in the tblCumm table?

If so, you would add a condition in a WHERE clause that would limit the row being updated to the one with the MIN(ID) value for the set of rows.

Example:
UPDATE (tblAppropriation INNER JOIN tblCumm ON tblAppropriation.SF224Appropriation = tblCumm.SF224Appropriation) INNER JOIN tblSumIDDTB ON tblAppropriation.TBAppropration = tblSumIDDTB.Appropriation 
SET tblCumm.IDDCash = [tblSumIDDTB]![IDDBalance] 
WHERE tblCumm.ID = (Select Min(F.ID) From tblCumm As F Where F.SF224Appropriation = 
tblCumm.SF224Appropriation)
