Hello,

I want to update the main table’s specialItem Column.
There is a [item_type] in item table that info relating to the type of item and seasonality
Logic – if the item has “Holiday” as its item_Type in the item table, then in the main table for that same item – the  column “SpecialItem” will have “Y” in it, else will “N” – so how do I run a update query in access SQL to achieve this requirement?

So for example – see the attached image
accesQuery34.accdb

You need to use Iif function, like this:
UPDATE mainTable INNER JOIN item 
ON item.itemNumber = mainTable.item 
SET mainTable.SpecialItem = IIf(item.[item_type]="HOLIDAY","Y","N");

Open in new window
