SQL to Join and Update Tables

I'm getting an error for this SQL Statement.  I'm trying to join and update the tables.  I want to update NewProductURLinfo What's wrong?  Thanks.

UPDATE b
SET a.Weight = b.Weight
FROM Dist_List a
LEFT JOIN NewProductURLinfo b
  ON b.UPC = a.UPC
WHERE a.ID > 0 AND a.ID <= 100

Error
SQL query:

UPDATE b SET a.Weight = b.Weight FROM Dist_List a LEFT JOIN NewProductURLinfo b ON b.UPC = a.UPC WHERE a.ID >0 AND a.ID <=10

The set statment was wrong you were updating b table and setting column a.Weight.
Try this.


UPDATE b
SET b.Weight = a.Weight 
FROM Dist_List a
LEFT JOIN NewProductURLinfo b
  ON b.UPC = a.UPC
WHERE a.ID > 0 AND a.ID <= 100

Hello smoothcat11,

UPDATE b
SET b.Weight = =a.Weight   --- u are updating the table 'B'  so the target should be b.Weight
FROM Dist_List a
LEFT JOIN NewProductURLinfo b
  ON b.UPC = a.UPC
WHERE a.ID > 0 AND a.ID <= 100

Try this now
UPDATE NewProductURLinfo SET Weight = a.Weight
FROM Dist_List a
LEFT JOIN NewProductURLinfo b
  ON b.UPC = a.UPC
WHERE a.ID > 0 AND a.ID <= 100

Since you included the MS SQL Server zone you will get T-SQL solutions that may not be compatible to MySQL.
