Update query (2003)
I have this query that identifies records that I want to update in another table.
The fields in this query are:
Adj Size Categor
I take this query and join it to the table where I want to update two fields - "Contracts for Adj Size" and "Contracts for Sized Category"
All the fields above I join to like fields in the table I want to update. This identifies 50 or so records.
The "contracts for Adj Size" and "Contracts for Sized Categor" have a total for each County
I have the following in the county field once I run the query.
What I would like to do is add 1 to "Contracts for Adj Size" and "Contracts for Size Category" for each Countys total. Since there are 4 Lehighs then the fields would increase by 4 for the Lehigh "Contracts for Adj Size" total and "Contracts for Size Category" total. Adding 1 to each county total for each time the county appears.
How would I set up an update query to do this and is it possible.

Re: Update query (2003)
I can't really visualize the situation, but it seems to me that the counts are calculated numbers that shouldn't be stored in a table. They can easily be calculated on the fly in a query.
If I misunderstood you (which is quite possible), please provide more information about the tables involved, or attach a stripped down and zipped copy of your database. <post#=401925>post 401925</post#> for instructions.
