Hello,

I need to Update all values in Tbl1.Col3 (nvarchar)
From Tbl2.Col3
Where Tbl1.Col1 = Tbl2.Col1
And Tbl.Col4 is the most recent (Date Desc)


Tbl1:                                
-------------------------------
SKU     DESC.     STATUS
Abc     None             *
Def      None             **
                                 
                                 
Tbl2:                                                                            
-------------------------------                                          
SKU     DESC.     STATUS     DATE                              
Abc     None       A                20101023 12:03            
Abc     None       B                20101101 8:16              
Def     None       D                20101029 5:15
Def     None       B                  20101028 10:10            

                                                                                   

* This would be Set to 'B'    
** This would be Set to 'D'

with updateCTE
as
(
select sku, status, row=row_number() over (partition by status order by date desc)
from Tbal2
)
update Tbl1 set status = u.status from Tbl1 t, updateCTE u
 where t.sku = u.sku
 and u.row = 1

Slight modification:

with updateCTE
as
(
select sku, status, row=row_number() over (partition by sku order by date desc)
from Tbl2
)
update Tbl1 set status = u.status from Tbl1 t, updateCTE u
 where t.sku = u.sku
 and u.row = 1

Set Col3 = (
      select top(1) Tbl2.Col3
      Where Tbl1.Col1 = Tbl2.Col1
      Order by Tbl2.Col4 desc)

An expensive way to write top 1
May even cause a table scan to process the row numbering...
