Nothing wrong if it was an SQL Server query. Access does not like these queries. For Access you would write it like this:
UPDATE tblITEM inner join  tblJUNCTION on tblITEM.ItemCode = tblJUNCTION.ItemCode  
Set tblITEM.someCode  = tblJUNCTION.someCode

Open in new window

what is the error?

You run this on SQL Server?

I would try:
 UPDATE a
    Set someCode  = b.someCode
    From tblITEM as a inner join  tblJUNCTION as b on a.ItemCode
 = b.ItemCode
