If the field is numeric then you'll have to change it to a character based field.

just like what was suggested by Lee,
change the Data type of the field to Text if it is Number Data Type

you can use an update query to change the values


Update TableX
set [fieldname]=[fieldname] & "USABC"


or adding a where condition

Update TableX
set [fieldname]=[fieldname] & "USABC"
where <condition goes here>
