Change a field value within Update Select

I'm wondering if I can combine the following two queries to run as one query.  The first query is an Insert/select:  The second query is an update based on one of the fields being inserted.  The field is StatusCode.  It gets inserted with an initial value of 1 but then it needs to be changed based on the values of some other fields in the query.  Is it possible to do this all in one query?  

----- 1st query

insert into FileOne
    (CNumber,
    ID,
    DCode,
    PCode,
    b.Indicator,
    b.Discount,
    StatusCode)
SELECT
    cast(a.CNumber as char (5)),
    cast(a.ID as varchar (16)),
    cast(a.DCode as varchar (5)),
    b.PCode,
    b.Indicator,
    b.Discount,
    1
FROM PFILE a
    INNER JOIN TFile b
        ON a.ID = b.ID
WHERE SUBSTRING(b.CNumber,1,1)<>'S'

---- 2nd query

UPDATE FileOne
SET StatusCode = 0
WHERE
 (indicator = 0
OR Pcode <> 'D'
OR Dcode <>'C'
OR discount = 1)

No, you cannot.  In 2008, a MERGE statement can do something similar to what you're doing, but for right now you have to use seperate statements....INSERT and UPDATE are distinct operations.

Try this:
insert into FileOne

    (CNumber,

    ID,

    DCode,

    PCode,

    b.Indicator,

    b.Discount,

    StatusCode) 

SELECT

    cast(a.CNumber as char (5)),

    cast(a.ID as varchar (16)),

    cast(a.DCode as varchar (5)),

    b.PCode,

    b.Indicator,

    b.Discount,

    CASE

        WHEN (b.indicator = 0 OR b.Pcode <> 'D' OR cast(a.Dcode as varchar(5)) <>'C' OR discount = 1) THEN 0

    ELSE 1

    END as StatusCode

FROM PFILE a

    INNER JOIN TFile b

        ON a.ID = b.ID

WHERE SUBSTRING(b.CNumber,1,1)<>'S'
