need some SQL Update Help

I have a Access 2000 db and I have these 2 tables. 

InvoiceID - Primary Key - Autonumber
InvoiceNumber - long
SaleType - char(1)
TransactionDate - DateTime
Discount - Integer
WholesaleFlag - Boolean
PaymentMethod - Char(6)
CustPONumber - Char(30)
ShortName - Char(30)
MdCountCode - char(2)
TaxFreeID - char(30)
Paid - Boolean
FestInvoiceNumber - long

The second Table is:

TransactionType - char(1)
Units - integer
UnitCost - Double
BottleSize - Double
LineItemId - PrimaryKey - Autonumber
InvoiceNumber - Long - Foreign Key Field from ArchInvoices
Productcode - char(6)
TransactionDate - DateTime
MdcountyCode - char(2)
ShortName - char(30)
Wholesalerflag - Boolean
Discount - integer
TaxFree - Boolean

Now, the two tables are in a 1 to Many relationship. For every 1 ArchInvoice 
record there are Many ArchLineItems records.

Now, I need to take the ArchLineItems.TransactionDate and set it to the 

I have tried many update statements and Access keeps on giving me an error 
saying missing 1 parameter. I need some sort of Update SQL that will do this. 
Can anybody help. Yes, I know the tables need to be normalized. Thanks in

Create a new update query. In the QBE window select both tables. Join

Indeed, that's a terrible database design.

Help with Links to Files

If I convert the file to 2007 format the option for Edit Links to Files is no longer there. Where did they go? thanks, mitch This is strange.

Need to sort dates before 1900 in proper order
I need to sort dates before 1900 in proper order -- ones after 1900 are all fine but any dates like 03/29/1865 will always sort by month and day but NEVER the year except in the month area. Don't know if I am making sense -- but will be like: 03/29/1865 03/29/1866 03/29/1873 04/01/1863 04/01/1868 etc. Thanks, Judy M. I can provide a chunky workaround, until someone provides a better answer: Assuming your 5 sample dates are in cells A1 ~ A5, and that single digit months and days are always expressed with a leading zero: In cell B1, enter this formula: =VALUE(MID(A1,1,2)) In C1, ente...
