To add to what Jeff said:

A Memo box on a Form is bound to an underlying field. Changes to that Memo box would affect the data in that field, but only in the specific record the form is "pointing" to at the time.

If you want to include a button to update the same field for other records, you could do this:

Currentdb.Execute "UPDATE YourTable SET YourMemoField='" & Me.txTheMemoControl & "' WHERE <your criteria here>"

Note this can be troublesome with bound forms.
