Is it possible to create an update query that does not update if criteria is blank?

The attached example will show what I mean. I would like to run a single update query that only updates the records in the form below where the field (Those highlighted in yellow) has a value but does nothing to the fields that have no value.

The subform is creating records from the selected criteria in the blue boxes at the top of the form so I want to create an Update query  based on the same select query and update only where the criteria is entered in the yellow boxes and ignores the rest?

Hope that's clear. My questions generally arn't.
