Once each Table1 row has been updated then I want to update Table5.row4 to 1, it is like a flag saying which row has been updated.

thats correct. Table 5 is just another table that has the data and updates table1.

I am not trying to update table5. I am using table 5 to update table1. Table5 is where I am pulling the data from to insert into table1.

basically when table5 lets say UPC code matches Table1 upc code then update.

you can't update two tables in one statement

try this.


Update table1 with table5

update x
set x.row1 = y.row1 ..and so on
from table1 as x inner join table5 as y on x.ID5 = y.ID5

update table2

update x
set x.row1 = 1
from table2 as x inner join table1 as y on y.ID1 = x.ID1
inner join table5 as z on z.ID5 = y.ID5

That did  not work for me either but  what I did is create another stored procedure and execute it after this one ran. Thanks again.
