My code:

UPDATE [ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem]
SET [Mfg Name]=[ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileOra].[Mfg Name]

and I get the following error?

Server: Msg 107, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The column prefix 'ACCTG.dbo.Co$AgileOra' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.

What gives????

UPDATE [ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem]   <--- this is the table to be updated
SET [Mfg Name]=[ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileOra].[Mfg Name]  <--- doesn't specify the same table name

and you haven't provided a From clause to specify the relationship
between the rows in [Co$AgileItem]
and [Co$AgileOra]

what are you actually trying to do?

Create on UPDATE stmt to update 2 columns [Mfg] and [Mfg Part Number] from table [ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileOra].[Mfg Name] to [ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem] with the exact same data just missing the Mfg info.


[ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileOra]                   [ACCTG].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem]
[No.]   09-0200-001                                 [No.] 09-0200-001
[Descrip] Test                                         [Descrip] Test
[Mfg] Jones                                             [Mfg] NULL
[Mfg Part Number] 123                             [Mfg Part Number] NULL

update [Acctg].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem]
  set A.[Mfg] = B.[Mfg]
       ,A.[Mfg Part Number]=B.[Mfg Part Number]
 from [Acctg].[dbo].[Co$AgileItem] as A
 Inner Join [Acctg].[dbo].[Co$AgileOra] as B
    on A.[No.] = b.[No.]
 

assuming that [No.] is the primary key of both tables...

Ran the code:

update [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileItem]
  set [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileItem].[Mfg] = [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileOra].[Mfg]
       ,[acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileItem].[Mfg Part Number] = [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileOra].[Mfg Part Number]
 from [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileItem] as A
 Inner Join [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileOra] as B
    on A.[No.] = b.[No.]
 
and got this error

Server: Msg 107, Level 16, State 3, Line 1
The column prefix 'acctg.dbo.co$AgileOra' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.
Server: Msg 107, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The column prefix 'acctg.dbo.co$AgileOra' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.

But I do have a table named acctg.dbo.co$AgileOra?

You're defining aliases, then not using them except in the ON clause. This will do it:

update A
  set [Mfg] = B.[Mfg]
       , [Mfg Part Number] = B.[Mfg Part Number]
 from [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileItem] as A
 Inner Join [acctg].[dbo].[co$AgileOra] as B
    on A.[No.] = b.[No.]
