How do I fill in a value in a field that is the same in every record? by Kckronic21
Posted: 14 Jan 02

The easiest way to fill in a value in a field that is the same in every record is to perform an update query. For example:
Let's say that you have a created a table called "Employees". There are 50 employees in this table, and everyone lives in "North Carolina". To fill in North Carolina in all of the records in this table, start by making a select query from the "Employees" table. In the criteria under the state field, type "North Carolina". Then, press the update query and go back to the "Employees" table to view the results.
