Example of an access update query

Could someone please show me how to write an update to:
Set the daily.Expense field to the total of the transactions.am ount
field where transDate = #07/05/04#?

I have tried this with the query builder or wizard and it says my
query doesn't use a field named "Expense". This is true because I'm
using the field named "amount" from the detail table.

I'm a bit (a lot) stymied by this.

Thanks for your help.

You need to click on the combobox below the transdate field and change
it from Group By to Where. Then it should work.

I have about 20,000 records pulled from Excel that I need to update. What I need to do is run an update query that bascially says: If a field is null, update it with the previous record value of that same field. In some instances, it will have to go back a few records before it finds a value that is not null. Can this be done? Thanks Bill
