SQL UPDATE

Below code is only updating 1 record. Should be updating the 50 records in the temp table.

update #State
SET StateName = StateProvinceDesc
from StateProvince
WHERE  StateCode = StateProvinceCode

Not sure what the problem is.

Are you sure there are 50 records that match?  Try writing it this way.

Update s
SET s.StateName = sp.StateProvinceDesc
FROM #State s
   INNER JOIN StateProvince sp
      ON s.StateCode = sp.StateProvinceCode

I am re-keying the State Province records into the StateProvince table.
I re-keyed 4 records and reran query. Now those records are being updated correctly.
Visually they all look right, so I am not sure why re-keying over the state code in the table is  causing the records to now be updateable. ???????????????????????????????????????????????

I will let you know if this is all fixed after I re-key all records.
Re-Keyed records and everything is fine now.

Last time I do a copy and paste when creating records in a table.
