I have 14 different tables and each table has the same field names. I want to update the same field in every table but enter in a different value for that field in each table? Does anybody know how to do this?

Is there a prize for guessing which program you're using? & a bonus prize for guessing which version?

Sorry, not my thang. Here's the first thing I found, which assumes the field(s) already populated.

Select the Field, then Edit -- Replace.

Here's the second thing I found, in case the field(s) are initially blank.

Use an update query. Design a standard query, then menu-select Query -- Update Query. This'll give you an "update to" option.
