I have an update statement which works in Access. Now I am moving to SQL Server and  trying to modify the statement, but so far without luck. What am I doing wrong?

Here the Access statement:

 UPDATE MyTable INNER JOIN YourTable ON MyTable.ID = YourTable.ID SET MyTable.NAME = [YourTable]![NAME], MyTable.ADDRESS = [YourTable]![ ADDRESS]

Here my new modified for SQL Server statement.

UPDATE MyTable
SET MyTable.NAME = YourTable.NAME, MyTable.ADDRESS = YourTable. ADDRESS
WHERE MyTable.ID = YourTable.ID

Thanks.

Try:

UPDATE MyTable
SET MyTable.NAME = YourTable.NAME, MyTable.ADDRESS = YourTable. ADDRESS
FROM MyTable, YourTable
WHERE MyTable.ID = YourTable.ID

Thank you ndb. That worked.
The only problem I have now - when I run it in the Sql server - everything is fine, but when I am trying to run from VB it gives me message "YourTable is not an object's name".
If you have an answer I will post it as a separate question(I have 30 points left at this time).

Try to use:

UPDATE MyTable
SET MyTable!NAME = YourTable!NAME, MyTable!ADDRESS = YourTable!ADDRESS
FROM MyTable, YourTable
WHERE MyTable!ID = YourTable!ID

No, sql server doesn't recognize this syntax.

What do you use in VB to connect to your database ... ODBC or OLE DB?
