When I try to run this update query in ms access 2007 I get an error box message that says "Data type mismatch in criteria expression". I know the problem is at the end around replace(property.[park city]," ","")=replace(locations2011.city," ",""). But I checked the data types for all the related columns, which is text, and they all match for both tables. If I put quotes around property.[park city] or remove the replace function from it, the query will run but obviously not how I want it to. I've tested this code with a smaller table and it works so what's the problem?

UPDATE property, locations2011 SET property.county = locations2011.countyWHERE property.county Is Null And property.[park state]=locations2011.state And replace(property.[park city]," ","")=replace(locations2011.city," ","");

I know I can just remove all the spaces from the property table with ctrl+h replace all but I'd rather leave the data that's already there alone if possible.
