    Run-time error '3144': Syntax error in UPDATE Statement

    I am having a problem with a Macro that has been working up to this point. I am receiving the following message:

    Run-time error '3144': Syntax error in UPDATE statement

    This is the information that shows when I select Debug with CurrentDb.Execute strSQL highlighted in yellow:

    strSQL = "UPDATE WeeklySummary SET "

    For x = 1 To NumFields
    strSQL = strSQL & "WeeklySummary." & Fields(x - 1) & " = " & rs.Fields(x - 1).Value

    If x <> NumFields Then
    strSQL = strSQL & ", "
    End If
    Next x

    strSQL = strSQL & " WHERE (((WeeklySummary.WeekEnding)=" & strDate & "));"

    CurrentDb.Execute strSQL

    EndSub:

    End Sub
    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________

    Sub LoadFromExcel()

    End Sub



    I am new to this forum and fairly new to Access so any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    When the code breaks, what is the value in the variable strDate
    Maybe you need:
    strSQL = strSQL & " WHERE (((WeeklySummary.WeekEnding)=#" & strDate & "#));"
    If this helped, please click the star at the bottom left of this posting and add to my reputation . Many thanks.
