I have 2 tables:

Table 1
OrderID
ProductID
ItemQuantity
ItemName
ItemCost


Table 2
SessionID
ProductID
ItemQuantity

What I am trying to do is update Table1.ItemQuantity with values of Table2.ItemQuantity where their productIDs are equal.


Thanks for your help

What  is the PK for Table1, Table2?

In the scenario illustrated below, should the ItemQuantity be updated with value 5 or 6?

Table1
Product1D ItemQuantity
===============
1             4        
2             ?

Table2
Product1D ItemQuantity
===============
1             4        
2             5
2             6

SQL you are asking for is listed below. But the update may be incorrect?

Update Table1
Set      ItemQuatity = Table2.ItemQuantity
FROM Table2
WHERE Table1.ProductId = Table2.ProductId
