conditional updating

conditional updating

I have a form with two fields tied to the same table field.

One is a display of the current value, the other is a dropdown list to select a new value.

On the form, only one of those fields is displayed based on the content of the table field.

In the update query, I want to designate which form field to bind based on the same criteria I use to display those fields.

Lets say the table name is PORC_dates and the field is date1 and the two form fields in question are datepicker1 and currentdate1.

If PORC_dates.date1 already has data in it, I don't want to update it at all. But if it has no data, then update it from datepicker1.

Is that possible?
