Update Query Help...

Greets,

Have a (hopefully) quick question.

How do I UPDATE one table based on criteria in another table?

All help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    Depends on what you want to do.

    [code]
    update table1 set
    column1 = (select sum(column4) from table2)
    [/code]

    [code]
    update table1 t1 set
    column1 = value1
    where exists (
    select 1 from table2 t2
    where t1.column3 = t2.column1
    and ...
    )
    [/code]

    If you'd be more specific I might be able to give you a better example.
