In my update query, I have 3 requirements:
If the Country field in the Trans table is:
USA, then Base Rate field = 11%
UK, then the Base Rate field = 12%
Canada, then the Base Rate field = 13%.

Using the query builder, I listed the the Base Rate field three times (see below).  Will this work?  If not, how do I do this?  Thank you.

Tom

I can't do this using the Query Wizard such as below?
I realized I goofed my example in the Criteria above.  Hopefully this example is better.

Field:               Base Rate                Base Rate             Base Rate
Table:              Trans                       Trans                     Trans
Update to:       .11                          .12                         .13
Criteria:           [Trn]![Cty]="USA"     [Trn]![Cty]="UK"     [Trn]![Cty]="Canada"

I goofed it again.  The table is Trans so the criteria should read:
[Trans]![Cty]='USA', etc.

So I am only comparing the Cty field name to see if it is USA, UK or Canada.

Thank you.

Not yet.  I am waiting for the answer to the question I just posted on how to change after the Criteria line from "or" to "and".  Then I can try it.  Thanks.
