SQL Query

I have an Access query (below) I'd like to run in Sql Server but of course the syntax is incorrect. Can anyone help me with what it should actually be?

UPDATE tempMeals_In INNER JOIN Routes ON (tempMeals_In.ST_Site = Routes.GId) AND (tempMeals_In.mls_route_fk = Routes.MobileDeviceId) SET tempMeals_In.ST_Route = [RId];

is this query really valid in Access?

Try:
UPDATE tempMeals_In 
SET ST_Route = [RId]
from tempMeals_In 
INNER JOIN Routes ON (tempMeals_In.ST_Site = Routes.GId) AND (tempMeals_In.mls_route_fk = Routes.MobileDeviceId)

The above answer is correct, so instead of adding two cents I'll mention If you're doing a lot of Access to SQL query conversion I have an article out there on Migrating your Access Queries to SQL Server Transact-SQL that's a grab bag of syntax differences.
