I have an access table tbl_Items_UPC (Target Table) with a QTYONHND column that I want to only update from dbo_SSG_UPC_SCAN (Source Table) when the source value changes. I work mostly with SQL and it has a MERGE function that does that very well. I suspect that I would have to use an update query in access to accomplish this, I have tried a couple of queries but it didn't seem to work. I am using Access 2016
