I have 2 tables one table lists all the client name.
CLIENT_ID
CLIENT_NAME


second table refer has a column with the client name
ID,
CLIENT_NAME,
JOB_DESC
,.....

As you see table 2 has the name of the Client Name in string (varchar(255)

Now i wish to add an additional column to the second table to store the CLIENT_ID

and this client_id column needs to be updated based on the data in the table 1.

Can i do with one Single Update statement.

      PCN.ID,ROLE_CLIENT_NAME
FROM

      JOB_REQ JR  LEFT OUTER JOIN
      PROJECT_CLIENT_NAME PCN ON JR.ROLE_CLIENT_NAME=CLIENT_NAME

I'm not sure if I switched the fields around so you can try this as well

PDATE JOB_REQ
SET  PROJECT_CLIENT_ID = (SELECT TOP 1 ID
                                              FROM
                                              PROJECT_CLIENT_NAME
                                              WHERE PROJECT_CLIENT_NAME.CLIENT_NAME =JOB_REQ.ROLE_CLIENT_NAME)
