Default Table to Table Update

Here's my problem
Table "a" has three fields Seqno, Name, Phone.
Table "b" has three fields Seqno, Name, Phone.

I'm trying to link the tables based on "Seqno" (Relationship).
Than replace "a" Name and Phone with "b" Name and Phone.

I'm from dBase and tring to get the feel of Access 2007. With dBase it would have been a relationship followed by a replace.

Hope for some help.

You need an update query to perform this task. I have an example here
I have updated my Product_Master table in the same way you look for.

UPDATE Product_Master INNER JOIN T_Group_Master ON Product_Master.GroupCode = T_Group_Master.GroupCode SET Product_Master.GroupName = T_Group_Master.GroupName;

In above example, I filled all the group names of Product_Master table from T_Group_Master where the key field (GroupCode in both tbl) are same.

You may replace table and field names with your.

Hope this helps
