Full Name Comment from Aaron Chapman @ 2/4/2015
Yes, I did.  The default value for first and last name are set in the query.  I no longer get the "field cannot be update" message but when I click the command button to create a new record on the form, the "fullname" field still goes blank and it doesn't allow me to type anything in the box.  Sorry, I'm still pretty new at Access.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

A record isn't created until you add some data
You won't now need to type into the Full Name this will be created automatically
Just add another field you would usually fill in.

Full Name Comment from Aaron C @ 2/4/2015
It was the default value in the text box properties of the "FullName" field.  The control source is "FullName" and it gets that from the concatenated field I set up in the query. I tried to set the default value of the first and last name fields but with the same effect. Thanks for your help.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Did you remove Default Value of the FullName and just set First/Last?

Full Name Comment from Aaron Chapman @ 2/3/2015
I setup the full name field in my query as instructed in this lesson, then added that field to my form.  I then set a default value in the properties for that full name field to one employee so that he doesn't have to keep typing his name in the field for every record he adds.  When I try to add a new record, though, Access opens a window that says, "Field cannot be updated."  When I click okay, I can then continue on but the full name field is blank.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Was it the Default Value you set or the Control Source?
With it being joined you may need to set the Default Vaule of the First and Last name fields so the query joins them
