My update code doesnt work.
Tblsite links to tbladdress
tempmarketing2 links on postcode to tbladdress

this works as a select statement but the update statement below fails

SELECT tblAddress.Address_PostZip AS Expr1, tblSite.Site_Name AS Expr2, TempMarketing2.siteid AS Expr3, tblSite.Site_ID AS Expr4,
       TempMarketing2.company AS Expr5, *
  FROM TempMarketing2
 INNER JOIN tblAddress ON tblAddress.Address_PostZip = TempMarketing2.epostcod AND TempMarketing2.epostcod = tblAddress.Address_PostZip
 INNER JOIN tblSite ON tblAddress.Address_ID = tblSite.Site_Address AND LEFT(TempMarketing2.Company,1) = LEFT(tblSite.SITE_NAME,1)
 WHERE (tblSite.Site_Active = 1)
 ORDER BY TempMarketing2.epostcod, TempMarketing2.company, tblSite.Site_Name
Update TempMarketing2 
set siteid=tblsite.site_id
from tblsite
INNER JOIN tblAddress ON tblAddress.Address_PostZip = TempMarketing2.epostcod AND TempMarketing2.epostcod = tblAddress.Address_PostZip 
INNER JOIN tblSite ON tblAddress.Address_ID = tblSite.Site_Address AND LEFT(TempMarketing2.Company,1) = LEFT(tblSite.SITE_NAME,1)
 WHERE (tblSite.Site_Active = 1)

you must join the UPDATE also#:
Update tm
set siteid=ts.site_id
from TempMarketing2 tm
INNER JOIN tblAddress a 
  ON a.Address_PostZip = tm.epostcod 
 AND tm.epostcod = a.Address_PostZip 
INNER JOIN tblSite ts 
  ON a.Address_ID = ts.Site_Address 
 AND LEFT(tm.Company,1) = LEFT(ts.SITE_NAME,1)
 and ts.Site_Active = 1
