Can anyone tell me why my update query does not work.  I get the error.

Server: Msg 116, Level 16, State 1, Line 17
Only one expression can be specified in the select list when the subquery is not introduced with EXISTS.


UPDATE up
SET up.ref = up.ref,
    up.pdate = up.pdate,
    up.problem = up.Problem,  
    up.Branch    = up.Branch ,
  up.Val =  v.val,
    up.moddate =  v.modified ,  
   up.type  = t.name
from  docsdb.dbo.vtab0010 v,  docsdb.dbo.temp  te,  docsdb.dbo.updated up,  docsdb.dbo.types t
where v.val in
(select  distinct te.ref,
                 te.pdate,
                 v.val,
                 te.problem,
                 te.branch,
               v.modified,
               t.name
           from   docsdb.dbo.vtab0010 v      
           join   docsdb.dbo.docs d on v.docid = d.docid
           join   docsdb.dbo.types    t on d.typid = t.typid
           join   docsdb.dbo.temp     te on v.val = te.val
           inner join (select v.val, max(v.modified) as modified from docsdb.dbo.vtab0010  v group by v.val)
           x on v.val = x.val and v.modified = x.modified
           where  (v.val = te.val and te.problem = 'No Card'))

your problem is here:

where v.val in
(select  distinct te.ref,
                 te.pdate,
                 v.val,
                 te.problem,
                 te.branch,
              v.modified,
              t.name

v.val IN ALL THOSE values, you can only have ONE value in your select statement, so it needs to be something like:

where v.val in
(select  v.val,
            ...etc...
