    I have different values in a single field that all need to update. For ex,
    Field name is color, and all Maroons update to Red, all Aquas update to Blue,
    etc. I would like to have all of these updates done within a single query.
    Right now I have it in multiple queries strung together by a macro, but this
    is cumbersome.

    Thanks

    Build a cross reference table with two fields - OldColor NewColor and
    fill it with all of the combination to do your update.

    Create your update query and add the cross reference table. For criteria
    use [OldColor] and for Update To use [NewColor] and run.
