create database link from A to B using whatever credentials needed for B.

then do something like this in A.

update tableB@dblink_to_B set C = (select C from tableA where tableA.id = tableB.id);

Change the where clause to whatever unique identifiers are appropriate to connect one row in A to one row in B.
This will update every row in tableB.  If the subselect on A can't find a value, then that row in B will be set to NULL.


If that's not what you want, then you'll probably want to add a where clause on B to only update the rows you're interested in.

To create a DB Link you should have create database link privileges or system/sys user login credentials.

SQL>create database link <link_name> connect to scott identified by <pass> using 'TNSNAMES';

Here is the oracle doc on DB Link creation.

sorry didn't see your reply until today.  Yes, you need to create the link and fill in your db name, username and password
Note, the db name (tns alias) is in quotes, the linkname, username and password are not

create database link DBLINK_TO_B
connect to YOUR_B_USER
identifed by YOUR_B_PASSWORD
using 'YOUR_B_DATABASE';
