Update multivalue field in table from form with SQL

Access 2007 on Vista

I am using a form to establish the variables for a report before it is 
created. One field on the underlying table is a multivalue field, and the 
form includes a multi-select combo box control. After selections are made and 
the OK button on the multi-select combo drop down is clicked, focus moves to 
the next control. I have discovered though, that the underlying table does 
not update immediately, but does so correctly when I close the form. This 
sequence does not deliver the proper report data, so I need a way to 
immediately update the underlying table (maybe using After Update event) for 
multi-select control. Can't seem to get syntax right.    

I am getting an error which totally baffles me. When I attempt to run the 
following code behind a form, I am getting the following:

    Run time error '13'    Type mismatch

I have checked all data types but cannot find mismatch. 

Dim sqlTaskChoices As String
'Now write/update the task selections to the underlying table "TaskHoursData"
    sqlTaskChoices = "UPDATE TaskHoursData _
    SET TaskHoursData.TaskForReport = '" _ 
    & Me!cboRequiredTasks _
    sqlTaskChoices = sqlTaskChoices _
    & "' WHERE TaskHoursData.JobID = " & Me!cboJobSite & ";"

    DoCmd.RunSQL (sqlTaskChoices)

I have tried replacing Me!cboRequiredTaskChoices
      with  Me!cboRequiredTaskChoices.Value
but that produces same problem.

Is my approach wrong? Any guidance for me?

Thanks as always.

Just have your code force a disk write of the current record.

To force an update, just go:

If me.dirty = true then
   me.dirty = false
end if

You can place the above right before you launch the report. In fact, even 
without an multi-value column, you really did need to save the current 
record to disk, as the report pulls values from the table, not the current 
record in memory.

So, just place the above code right before you launch the report....

pivot table with dynamic base data
hiya, im trying to create a pivot table where I can change my base data (inserting or deleting rows of data) and still have this reflected in the pivot table. My solution was to use entire columns as my range for input to the pivotTable, but this means including blank rows which seems to muck up the calculations. I cant think how else i can allow for new rows to be added to the base data anyone got any ideas how to do this? thanks loads for your help! You can use a dynamic range as the source.
