I have been having problems with what I thought was an  easy update query, using the following query, and the error prompt simply says it cannot update database.  I have tested this code many times trying to run an update query to replace existing staging table values with mapped values.  Appreciate it if anyone can help.

The SQL Code is as follows:

UPDATE stgOutcomeDataUpload
SET stgOutcomeDataUpload.SPassABC = (SELECT  lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldValue
FROM  lkpStage4FieldMappings, stgOutcomeDataUpload
WHERE stgOutcomeDataUpload.SPassABC = lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldString AND (((lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldName)="SPassABC")));


thanks

Your query is incorrect. Try this one:
UPDATE stgOutcomeDataUpload  
INNER JOIN lkpStage4FieldMappings 
ON stgOutcomeDataUpload.SPassABC = lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldString 
SET stgOutcomeDataUpload.SPassABC = lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldValue
WHERE lkpStage4FieldMappings.FieldName="SPassABC";
