I have table TUBEDATA where each record has fields PartNumber and SerialNumber.

I have a second table CURRENT LOCATION with fields PartNumber and SerialNumber.  The records all have the SerialNumber but none the PartNumber

I need an update query to update all the records in table CURRENT LOCATION with PartNumber from table TUBEDATA.

Thanks,
Brooks
