Hi,

I assumed that there are two tables named as Table_1 and Table_2.

You want to update PID column of Table_2 with ID column of Table_1.

If I am right, you can try following query to update your second table.


UPDATE	Table_2
SET		pid = Table_1.id
FROM	Table_1
		INNER JOIN Table_2 ON Table_1.code = Table_2.code
