Merging two one to one tables

I have two tables with a one to one relationship.


As an example:

ClientTable
clientId
startdate
firstname
lastname

ClientInfoTable
ClientInfoId
ClientId
address1
address2
city
state
zip
phone


I want to add the fields from the second table into the first table. I can add the empty fields. But I need to know, once I've added the fields, is there a way to run a query that will import that data from table2 into table1's fields? Then I can delete table2.

I know I can do this with a loop one row at a time, but I'm wondering if there is some kind of update query that will do them all at once with the query?

thanks!

I figured it out, something like this, but with all the fields needed.

MERGE Client AS cli
 USING (SELECT clientid,WorkPhone FROM clientInformation) AS ci
ON cli.clientid = ci.clientid
 WHEN MATCHED THEN UPDATE SET cli.WorkPhone = ci.WorkPhone
 ;

thanks!
