Example of an access update query

P: n/a
Could someone please show me how to write an update to:
Set the daily.Expense field to the total of the transactions.amount
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.
