Hi,

I have hundreds of update queries but this one seems to boggle my brain
i get an "operation must be an updatable query" error

I have a query that filters the data I need to update, then linked to the Table i am updating
there is no duplicate fields in the 2 tables

please could you assist, not sure what i am missing here

The simple route with these is to change it to a select query and see if you can edit it.

If you can then today Access doesn't like you.
Try converting the joins to a sub query and make the criteria an IN(Your Sub query)

It is updateable when select query
the one object is a query and the other is the table
shall i select a query as well for the table?

You probably need to actually move to what Access thinks is two tables, even if one is temporary.
