Hello all,

Need help in getting a query to work. In order to get the 'value/result' I want I need a result which is based on two tables. I have tried several different alternatives, but failed to get it working..

Basically what it's doing is counting the value of a player's price (sports sim) which is based on the players offensive(Off) and defensive(Def) as well as the team's reputation(T.Rep).

As mentioned in the title I'm working with Firebird databases.

I'm a beginner, so bare with me please :)
update Players set P.Value = P.Off+P.Def+T.Rep (select P.*, T.* from Team T join Players P on T.Club = P.Club)

The change should bo following:
UPDATE Players SET Value = P.Off+P.Def+T.Rep
  FROM Players P
 INNER JOIN Team T on T.Club = P.Club

Thanks for your reply.

I do get the error msg "SQL Error:  Dynamic SQL Error SQL error code = -104 Token unknown - line 1, column 48 FROM. Error Code: -104." Seems a bit weird.

Sorry, Firebird does not support this syntax which is obvious for SQL Server, so, please try this:
UPDATE Players P 
   SET P.Value = P.Off+P.Def + (SELECT T.Rep FROM Team T WHERE T.Club = P.Club)
