Hello Group;
I am trying to update a Linked Server table with the following query but have varying errors.
Please let me know what the heck I am doing wrong here.  Because it is a linked server, the tables initially need to be called out in Four Dot notation.

UPDATE [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[PartPlant]
SET DaysOfSupply = 10
FROM(SELECT DaysOfSupply FROM [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[PartPlant]
INNER JOIN [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[Part]
ON PartPlant.PartNum = Part.PartNum WHERE Part.TypeCode ="P")

Goal: Update the PartPlant.DaysOfSupply with a value of 10.  I get errors like Cannot update VarChar field with Integer, but when I try to put the value of 10 in quotes I get other errors.

Thanks for any help!

Got it!  Just had to change the "ON" portion reverse the table names and use single quotes.

UPDATE [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[PartPlant]
SET DaysOfSupply = 14
SELECT DaysOfSupply FROM [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[PartPlant]
INNER JOIN [VANTAGE TEST].[MFGSYS].[PUB].[Part]
ON Part.PartNum = PartPlant.PartNum WHERE Part.TypeCode = 'P'
GO
