I have a form called “frmDailyReport”.  When I select an assignment group from the dropdown menu and run the report, I want to tag all of the records in the report as been sent.  I want to accomplish this by changing the value for the checkbox in the “Site Notified” field to “Yes” in the Audit Data table.  Please see the attached sample DB.

qryAuditsComplete:  Query to select all records that have been audited; Uses the frmDailyReport for criteria

qrySiteGroupList:  Query for dropdown list for the frmDailyReport

frmDailyReport:  Input for qryAuditsComplete
