Simple MySql Update query gives 1054 error

I've got a table (logentries) that has 2 columns of data , analyte1 and analyte3 and I need to swap the data in SOME of the rows. To determine those rows requires a join of the logentries table. So, in order not to have a subqurery select that depended on the logentries table, I created a table (that I will delete after the swap). The temporary table was created by:

CREATE table LogIds3014
SELECT
    logentries.LogEntryID,
    logentries.Analyte1,
    logentries.Analyte3
FROM
    metricsil.logentries
    INNER JOIN metricsil.productruns
        ON (logentries.ProductRunID = productruns.ProductRunID)
    INNER JOIN metricsil.products
        ON (productruns.ProductID = products.ProductID)
WHERE (products.UnitID =3014);

Ok, no problem, new table is made up with the data I want, so now I go to update my logentries table with the following:

update logentries
    set logentries.Analyte1 = logids3014.Analyte3,
    logentries.Analyte3 = logids3014.Analyte1
where(logentries.LogEntryID=logids3014.LogEntryID);

but instead of working, I get the following error:
Error Code : 1054
Unknown column 'logids3014.LogEntryID' in 'where clause'
(0 ms taken)

I must be doing some bone head mistake, any help would be appreciated.

Unknown column 'logids3014.LogEntryID' in 'where clause'

your table is

LogIds3014

with a capital "I"

MySQL is Case sensitive. In addition to gamebits, the I is also uppercase.  Check everywhere else in your SQL as well

Good pick up on the case, but when the query was run to create LogIds3014 is saved the table in all lower case, which I didn't think about until these replies. In any event, changing the case to LogIds3014 or leaving it lower case still gives the error.

On another note, if I set the where cause to say : where(logentries.LogEntryID=70799); It then complains -> Error Code : 1054
Unknown column 'logids3014.Analyte3' in 'field list'

BTW, I'm using SQLyog as a graphical interface for all this.

Nowadays, monitoring is a mixture of tools, systems, and codes—making it a very complex process. And with this complexity, comes variables for failure. Get DZone’s new Guide to Performance to learn how to proactively find these variables and solve them before a disruption occurs.

Ah. I thought this was on *nix. So it's Windows/MySQL
I think it's

update logentries
from logentries inner join logids3014 on logentries.LogEntryID=logids3014.LogEntryID
set logentries.Analyte1 = logids3014.Analyte3, logentries.Analyte3 = logids3014.Analyte1

Actually, try this

update logentries, logids3014
SET logentries.Analyte1 = logids3014.Analyte3, logentries.Analyte3 = logids3014.Analyte1
WHERE logentries.LogEntryID=logids3014.LogEntryID

Great, I was close, just missing the logids3014 in the update parameters, I guess that was not intuitive to me. Thanks.
