i have a button called set to processed, i also have a field on a linked table called processed which is a bit field. I want to update this  to a 1 when clicked on the button based on some where conditions.

this is my query

Private Sub Set_To_Processed_Click()
task = " UPDATE [dbo_Load Table] INNER JOIN WorkTable ON [dbo_Load Table].ID = WorkTable.ID SET Processed = 1" _
& " WHERE (((WorkTable.[Pay Group])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Pay Group])) OR (((WorkTable.[Pay Group Description])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Pay Group Description])) OR (((WorkTable.[General Ledger Account])<>[dbo_Load Table].[General Ledger Account])) OR (((WorkTable.[General Ledger Cost Center])<>[dbo_Load Table].[General Ledger Cost Center])) OR (((WorkTable.[General Ledger Department])<>[dbo_Load Table].[General Ledger Department])) OR (((WorkTable.[Work Center])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Work Center])) OR (((WorkTable.[Pay Period Ending Date])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Pay Period Ending Date])) OR (((WorkTable.Hours)<>[dbo_Load Table].[Hours])) OR (((WorkTable.Amount)<>[dbo_Load Table].[Amount]) OR ((WorkTable.Week)<>[dbo_Load Table].[Week]) OR ((WorkTable.[Pay Type Code])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Pay Type Code]) OR ((WorkTable.[Pay Type Description])<>[dbo_Load Table].[Pay Type Description]) OR ((WorkTable.[File Number])<>[dbo_Load Table].[File Number]) OR ((WorkTable.Name)<>[dbo_Load Table].[Name])" _
& " OR ((WorkTable.[HOURLY SALARY])<>[dbo_Load Table].[HOURLY SALARY]) OR ((WorkTable.[FULL TIME_PART TIME])<>[dbo_Load Table].[FULL TIME_PART TIME]) OR ((WorkTable.ACTIVE_INACTIVE)<>[dbo_Load Table].[ACTIVE_INACTIVE]) OR ((WorkTable.[HOURLY RATE])<>[dbo_Load Table].[HOURLY RATE]));"
DoCmd.RunSQL (task)
End Sub

but i get the above error, i looked online they said it might have to do with some permission on the database file or the folder and i checked that and i have read-write access.

any help will be greatly appreciated.
