I want to use a macro to open a table, go to a record and then enter data in a field. Below is a picture of my macro up to the point where the record is selected.

Now which action can I use to give a value to a specific field in that record. The fieldname is "Note" and I want to enter "This is the new value." in that field.

I don't think you can.  Is there a reason you want to use a Macro instead of an update query?

Thanks, You'r right. I read more about update queries and understand the limitations of macros vs update queries better now.
