I have two tables, both contain employee_no and other column's, I need to 'copy' only the employee_no column into an existing tb, so that it can be updated with new information, how would I go about doing this?

You mean something like:

   INSERT INTO [Table2] ([employee_no])
       SELECT [employee_no] FROM [Table1]

Updates one table with info in another table joined on employee_no. ??

UPDATE a SET
   somecolumn = b.someothercolumn
FROM TableOne a
INNER JOIN TableTwo b ON a.employee_no = b.employee_no
