Thank you for the information. The Jews deported from Odessa to Berezovka
County in Transnistria in early 1942 had the same fate. I am not sure about
what happened in the springs and falls; perhaps the mortality rate were

I tried that and got this error: PEW (my application) can't update all
the records in the update query.  PEW didn't update 112 field(s) due to
a type conversion failure...

Remember, this is an update query I'm trying to do.  My Update To: field
looked like this:

StrConv([Part Description],"vbProperCase")

Access put in the quotation marks, so I'm not sure that the Query
Builder recognizes the StrConv command.  I tried editing the raw SQL and
it asked me to set the variable "vbProperCase".  Any hints?
