I am really, and I mean really new to SQL. Right now I am taking an Access 95 database and putting it into a Access 2007 database. I have been managing to limp by up until this latest form. To simplify things I have kept all forms, queries, reports, fields, etc by the same names. However, some of his queries do not show up in the Queries area. I am assuming that this is because he wrote these in SQL. This is a sample of the SQL from the old database.

If Frame30.Value=1 And Not IsNull(Forms!EdEnroll!Department.Value) Then
DoCmd.RunSQL "UPDATE wrkTable SET Wrktable.Chosen=True "&_
"Where WrkTable.Department=Forms!EdEnroll!Department.Value;"
End If

My question here is do I have to create an update query in access for this code to work? Or is it running the query through the code? If the latter is true, why wouldn't my code be working?

Is there an sql checker online, like there is a HTML5 code checker?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
