Hello,
can you please help,
the case statement is not working.

if POD column is Empty, then Updated Column is Null else 'YES'

UPDATE DATABASE1.dbo.ScanItem
SET
  POD = DATABASE2.POD,
  PickedUpTime = DATABASE2.PickedUpTime,
  DeliveredTime = DATABASE2.DeliveredTime,
  CCDriverNumber = DATABASE2.PickupDriver,
  Instructions = DATABASE2.Instructions,  
  StatusID = DATABASE2.StatusID,
  ServiceTypeID = DATABASE2.ServiceTypeID,
 Updated = Case when POD = '' THEN  Updated = Null Else 'YES' End,
  OrderDate = DATABASE2.OrderDate
FROM DATABASE2.dbo.ActiveOrders DATABASE2 , DATABASE1.dbo.ScanItem ScanItem
WHERE DATABASE2.OrderNo = ScanItem.CCOrderNo
And DATABASE2.AccountNumber = 3333 and ScanItem.Updated is Null

Any help is appreciated.

>FROM DATABASE2.dbo.ActiveOrders DATABASE2 , DATABASE1.dbo.ScanItem ScanItem
btw, I don't see an ON clause that tells SQL how these two tables are joined.
Either this is a cross join, or you need something like..
 
FROM DATABASE2.dbo.ActiveOrders DATABASE2
   JOIN DATABASE1.dbo.ScanItem ScanItem ON DATABASE2.SomeID = ScanItem.SomeID
