The following SQL syntax updates table1 with information from table2 depending on exact matches.

I need to change this syntax to coalesce 'Found' or 'Missing', NOT updateing table1 w/ data from table2 as it does now.

update table1 set col5 = coalesce(table2.col4, 'Missing')
from table1 left outer join table2 on table1.col3 = table2.col4
