Hi,

I have the following statement and am getting an error.  I can see why there is an error, but what is the work around.  

So essentially I need to set check =1 when customernumber=realmid and the barcode =the barcode from another table...

Thanks

UPDATE Customer_Info_Barcode_Assay
SET Check1 = 1
WHERE CustomerNumber=@RealmId and Barcode=(SELECT IntuitQboInvoiceId
                                                               FROM dbo.Intuit_Staging_Invoice_w_ID
                                                               GROUP BY RealmId, IntuitQboInvoiceId)

You have nothing to tie the subselect to the parent.  Try something like below.  Try below

UPDATE BA
SET Check1 = 1
from Customer_Info_Barcode_Assay BA
WHERE CustomerNumber=@RealmId
  and exists (SELECT ii.IntuitQboInvoiceId
                         FROM dbo.Intuit_Staging_Invoice_w_ID ii
                         where ii.RealmId = ba.CustomerNumber
                            and ii.IntuitOboInvoiceId = BA.Barcode)
