Your question is somewhat brief, but from what I understand of your question the answer is yes. You'd capture the selection into a variable and use that in VBA to do the necessary updates.

the question that would come to my mind (as feeble as it is) is:

If the values in a field "for all records in that table" are the same, then why do you even need the field?  

It sounds like that needs to be an application  wide value which you could load/store in a db_Properties table, or actually store as a property in the database.  If you do it this way, you could load that value into a TempVar or into a global variable when you start your application, then write it back if it changes.
