 Am I missing something incredibly easy?
Thank you for answering my previous question. Maybe you can help further...

The purpose of all this lame code is this:

I'm trying to find a way to update one table to match another table whose
name is specified by a control. Because the table specified by the control
is temporary, I can't link them...and because the table I'm updating has
relationships, I can't just overwrite it.

I was handed a database designed by someone else and told to fix it. That
person used a master table with a field that's either checked on or off to
determine whether a person is faxed. That table is then saved as another
table each time they send out a batch o' faxes. This allows them, I guess,
to restore a previous list of faxees.

I'm fairly new at this stuff, so I was trying to keep their method and just
fix it rather trying to find a different way to save each list of faxes.

Long story short. I'm an ignorant bastard.

Could you elaborate on the table a little more and exactly what you are
trying to update?
