I am trying to do a simple update statement in PL/SQL, Oracle 9i.

Table A
col1    col2     col3
1         1          Y
2         1          N
3         1          

Table B
col1    col2    col3
1         1         Y
2         1         Y
3         1         Y

All I need to do is the update Table B col3  the same as in Table A col3, if Table A col3 is null, then update as N.

I know oracle doesn't have the update from like SQL Server.  This makes it very difficult for me.  Please help.  Thanks.
