SQL Update Query

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
I am not a sql expert and am trying to learn SQL as i go for our applications.  I am trying to update my database  My query for selecting is

SELECT     contacts.direct_fax, contacts.direct_phone, contacts.first_name, address.central_phone_number, address.central_fax_number, address.name
FROM         contacts INNER JOIN
                      address ON contacts.address_id = address.id
WHERE     (contacts.first_name = 'ACCOUNTS')

I want to take the results of central_phone_number and central_fax_number on 1 table and update those numbers onto my direct_fax and direct_phone on another table. What is the correct syntax to do this?
