Hi:

I have a table aspnet_Users with columns UserId (uniqueidentifier) and UserName varchar(256).  

What I would like to do is copy all the UserName values from this table to my UserProfiles table that  also has also has UserId and UserName columns so that the UserName values match the UserId values in the new table - i.e.  username jsmith in record with UserId=xxyx in aspnet_Users is copied to the record in UserProfiles that has a UserId of xxyx

Any help greatly appreciated.

Something like ...

UPDATE UserProfiles
SET UserName = au.UserName
FROM aspnet_Users au
   JOIN UserProfiles up ON au.UserId = up.UserId

You'll also want to consider an INSERT of all rows that are in aspnet_Users but not in UserProfies, based on the UserId.

Hope this helps.
