You want to "affect" the action to bring about the desired "effect".

Here is an example from the interweb:

"Gender may affect the action of garlic oil on plasma cholesterol and glucose levels of normal subjects."

Klay's use of effect, as a verb, is correct.


ef·fect
/iˈfekt/
Noun
A change that is a result or consequence of an action or other cause.
Verb
Cause (something) to happen; bring about.
