I have 2 tables table1 and table2 both with identical columns and data-type

id = int
dob = date

I am trying to update all dob in table 1 based on the id of table 2

I am using the following statement

Update table1
set table1.dob = (select dob from table2
where table1.id = table2.id)
where id = 1;

Open in new window


When i run the query the the ? is displayed but it doesnt seem to procesing the statement, its just hanging. I have set to update one query so it should'nt take that long

any ideas?

Try this

Update table1
set table1.dob = (select table2.dob from table2
where table1.id = table2.id limit 1)
where table1.id = 1;
