Try putting spaces at the end of each line. Also it may just be the way that the EE textbox formatted it, but there were missing double quotes and ampersand signs (&).

strUpdateSQL = "UPDATE MOR_ChartDBSource_Template " _
& "SET (MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.Jan = '" & ResultString & "') " _
& "WHERE ((MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.YEAR) Like '2014') AND " _  & "((MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.CHARTDB_BIN) Like 'calcHC') " _
& "AND (MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.ORG_ABBR Like 'Total') AND " _  & "(MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.MOR_GROUP Like 'CE Prog Other')"

Umm NICE TRY !!

It blew up, when pasting into the vba it all turn red, so I made some changes and it continues to fail to function.

This is what I changed it to.

strUpdateSQL = "UPDATE MOR_ChartDBSource_Template " & _
 "SET (MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.Jan = '" & ResultString & "')" & _
 "WHERE ((MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.YEAR) Like '2014') AND " & _
 "((MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.CHARTDB_BIN) Like 'calcHC') " & _
 "AND (MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.ORG_ABBR Like 'Total') AND " & _
 "(MOR_ChartDBSource_Template.MOR_GROUP Like 'CE Prog Other')"

Glad I could help.


For future reference the Access query builder puts in a bunch of wasteful parentheses.
About the only time you need the parentheses is if you are using the IN keyword or combining AND and OR statements.
