A set of Microsoft Office security updates released on November 12, 2019 causes Access databases to fail when it runs Update Queries to modify data. An error like this appears when the query is run:
It doesn’t matter if the query is against a table in the current database, a linked table, or a linked SQL Server table. If the Access database engine is processing the UPDATE query, the error occurs.
In addition to Microsoft Access, other programs that update Access databases may also be affected. That includes Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc. and programs written in Visual Studio .NET, VB6, and web applications.
Types of Update Queries Affected
When attempting to run an Update query, it may fail with the error: “Query ‘query name’ is corrupt”. This occurs for an UPDATE query that:
Updates a single table (i.e. it updates a table, rather than the output of a Select query or join)
Specifies a WHERE clause (i.e. has entries in the Criteria row in the query designer)
These queries can be saved Access query objects or SQL strings executed in VBA code (or other languages that use ACE).
Security Updates Causing Query is Corrupt Error 3340
The issue was introduced on November 12, 2019 via the following patch updates for MSI builds:

Office 2016: Update for Office 2016 – November 12, 2019 (KB3085368)
