    Update Obsolete Items (2003 All Updates)

    I am missing something or have a blind spot about how to do this

    I have a table (TblAll Products) with all my products in it including a yes/no field to determine if a product is obsolete or not.

    I have used this years list of all existing products (TblCurrentProducts) to create a query (qryObsoleteProducts) showing any non matched items ie which are in TblAllProducts but not in TblCurrentProducts and are therefore obsolete.

    I tried to create an Update query from qryObsoleteProducts to set the yes/no flag in TblAllProducts to Yes but am getting an error: Operation must use an updatable query.

    Where I am going wrong

    We'd need to know the design of your query. Could you post a stripped down copy of your database? See <post#=401925>post 401925</post#> for instructions.
