    I have an update query (converted from a select query) where I'm trying to
    update/populate a Route field using [tablename].[fieldname]; however, when I
    look at the data in View everything looks ok. But, when I click run, I
    recieve an "enter parameter value" prompt.

    Can anyone tell me WHY I'm getting that message when I'm merely trying to
    update the data into another table???

    Is [tablename].[fieldname] spelled correctly? Is that table included as
    part of the query?

    Are you saying that you're expecting to be prompted for tablename and
    fieldname?

    Access doesn't allow you to do that. You'll have to build the SQL
    dynamically.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
