I have a table that has been put together from several sources of data.  Not all of the data in the original tables was complete.  I need to go in and update the missing data.  For example, I have the meter serial number in some records and not others.  I need to populate the incomplete records with the data from the "good data".  

I've created a view of the table to select the rows where METER_SERIAL is populated.
SELECT     ACCOUNT_ID, METER_SIZE
FROM         dbo.vData_CurrentMonth
WHERE     (NOT (METER_SIZE IS NULL))

I want to update tblData with the METER_SIZE data where the ACCOUNT_ID fields are equal.
