Trying to use an update query update a field in the second table based on a join.

UPDATE CRS_GisXrefExt_staging INNER JOIN CRS_GisXrefExt ON [CRS_GisXrefExt_staging].[item] = [CRS_GisXrefExt].[item] SET [CRS_GisXrefExt].[spin] = [CRS_GisXrefExt_staging].[spin]

incorrect syntax new  "INNER"

That's syntax used by Access's Jet SQL.  In SQL Server's T-SQL:

UPDATE CRS_GisXrefExt
SET spin = s.spin
FROM CRS_GisXrefExt c INNER JOIN
    CRS_GisXrefExt_staging s ON c.item = s.item

Open in new window
