Assuming that your table is in a detectable order - such as with an auto number ID, you can use this UPDATE query:


UPDATE YourTable
SET YourField = 0
WHERE ID = DMin("ID", "YourTable", "YourField IS NULL")

Open in new window


Note that if you do not have an autonumber, date field or some other way to identify the order of the records, then it is impossible to reliably find the "First" Null in your table.
