Here's the description of the two tables.
TBL1 TBL2 ------------ ------------ ID | VALUE ID | PRICE ------------ ----------- 1 | 10 1 | 100 2 | 20 2 | 200 3 | 30 3 | 300 ------------- ----------- SQL) UPDATE TBL1 SET VALUE=B.PRICE FROM TBL1 A INNER JOIN TBL2 B ON A.ID=B.ID
When I run the above query, I get the error message: "Column qualifier or table B undefined"
But this query works very well on MS SQL server. Please let me know if this is really impossible.
If just a subset of the rows are being updated than you'd have to add the following where clause Where exists (select 'x' from tbl2 t22 where t22.id=t1.id)
