I want to update a field's value to the previous day's field value (if on a Saturday) or to the value of the day after (if on a Sunday). I'm not sure of the correct syntax.

I tried this:
UPDATE [Copy Of IMPORT_Current] SET [Copy Of IMPORT_Current].WATER = DateAdd("d",-1, [Copy Of IMPORT_Current]![DATE])
IIf (Weekday([Copy Of IMPORT_Current]![DATE],1) =7
but it's not the correct syntax and it doesn't utilize the "OR" criteria I'm aiming for.

Any help would be great!
