Thanks, but I should been more clear.  I want to create the query in Query Design and apply the completed query by name.    I was hoping to do something like this:

  Dim dbe As PrivDBEngine, wrk As Workspace, db1 As Database, db2 As Database
   Dim, OutputFilePath As String

   OutputFilePath = "C:\Celebrant Assist V3\CelaRept.accdb"
   Set dbe = New PrivDBEngine
   Set wrk = dbe.Workspaces(0)
   Set db2 = wrk.OpenDatabase(OutputFilePath, False, False)

  '  Run a named querythat updates a table in db2
