Using UPDATE statement in Access VBA

I am having a problem getting the below statement to work.  It doesn't give me an error but also does not update the value in my table.

strSQL = "Select * from [tblSourcedHires] where SourceHireID = " & intSourceHireID & " "

                    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

                        If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then

                            strSQL = "UPDATE [tblSourcedHires] SET(RebateApplied) = " & strRebateApplied & " where SourceHireID = " & intSourceHireID & ""

                            db.Execute (strSQL)
                        End If

Is this supposed to only update a single record, or multiple?
strSQL = "SELECT * from [tblSourcedHires] " _
       & "WHERE SourceHireID = " & intSourceHireID

Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

While not rs.EOF
    rs.Edit
    rs!RebateApplied = strRebateApplied
    rs.Update
    rs.movenext 
WEND

rs.Close
Set rs = nothing

The syntax I provided above would handle single or multiple, although I prefer to use an update query if there are multiples.

Or you could simply use:
strSQL = "UPDATE [tblSourcedHires] " _
     & "SET [RebateApplied] = " & strRebateApplied & " " _
     & "WHERE SourceHireID = " & intSourceHireID
debug.print strsql
Currentdb.Execute strsql, dbfailonerror

Open in new window

If strRebateApplied is actually a string, then you would probably want to use:
strSQL = "UPDATE [tblSourcedHires] " _
     & "SET [RebateApplied] = '" & strRebateApplied & "' " _
     & "WHERE SourceHireID = " & intSourceHireID
debug.print strsql
Currentdb.Execute strsql, dbfailonerror
