I have a query where I am trying to update a field to the new fiscal year with the matching field from the old fiscal year.   It looks like this but it does not work.  Any ideas?

UPDATE [SELECT Mgr, PSINO, FiscalYear FROM PartForecast WHERE FiscalYear=2013; ] AS A INNER JOIN [SELECT Mgr, PSINO, FiscalYear FROM PartForecast WHERE FiscalYear=2012; ] AS B ON A.PSINO=B.PSINO SET A.Mgr = B.Mgr;

Basically what I am trying to do is match the Manager field (Mgr) to the PSI part number (PSINO) they are responsible for from fiscal year 2012 to 2013.

lets see if i understood it correctly..

update PartForecast as A inner join PartForecast as B
set A.Mgr=B.Mgr
where A.FiscalYear=2013 and B.FiscalYear=2012
