    How to properly update a table?

    Hi everyone

    I have a table that has a column of codes (1-10) that never change. Within that table I update the number of products completed for that particular code. I would like for my final results to only consist of May production, currently though, I still have Aprils numbers if there wasn't a change in May. I realize thats what an update query is so I'm asking for suggestions.

    I did try a delete query so I can clear the outdoor and indoor fields before I update but that also deletes the code field.

    I don't see the point of the after updateq table since it only ever contains data from the last month.

    Yeah I agree but the table with the codes needs that information. If I were to run select Q, it would take multiple Queries which is what it seems I need to do now that I think about it.... appreciate your help/thoughts

    Maybe you can do something with this suggestion.

    You can use
    the switch function or
    an if then function

    in a query to solve your problem.

    In the links are a few examples.
    I was not allowed to post links please correct the links by yourself.

    Thanks for the suggestion Peter.

    What I ended up doing is creating a macro to copy those tables before they get any data on them, then run my queries. Then I have another macro set-up to delete the tables with the old data and rename the copies to the originals if that makes any sense after I am done with them...
