I wonder if it is possible to UPDATE data in a table where you can match on CompanyID by running the Import and Export Wizard from SQL Management Studio, or do I need to build an SSIS package in BIDS?

I would just updating two fields, Budget and Income in the Company table, the rest will remain untouched and only when i got a match on CompanyID.

Kind Regards

    This cannot be done using Import\Export wizard, Your guess is correct and you need to depend SSIS package to do this. There are various SSIS tools available on BIDS like Script Task, SCD etc that makes your task easy.
