I am using MS SQL 2002 R2
I have 2 tables. I wish to update 4 fields from table 2 into same named columns in table 1 where they match on another field.
Table one [ONSGBGeog] has many fields of GIS data. I have created new columns DESCRIPTION, INDEX_LOCAL, INDEX_NATIONAL, DISTRICT.
Table 2 [DESIR] has same 4 named fields.
Match is where OUTAREA_ID in Table 2 (Key) matches COA_CODE in table1  (non-key).
