Hello,

You can try something like this

UPDATE Table1
SET Col2 = t2.Col2,
Col3 = t2.Col3
FROM Table1 t1
INNER JOIN Table2 t2 ON t1.Col1 = t2.Col1
WHERE t1.Col1 IN (21, 31)
GO

@Vikas: Your solution will work, only catch is that using UPDATE Table1.... FROM Table1 t1 may cause the table to block itself in an environment that supports parallelism. A better alternate is to use UPDATE t1....FROM Table1 t1 as shown below:

UPDATE t1
SET t1.field1 = t2.field11 - field111,
    t1.field2 = t2.field21 - field211
FROM dbo.table1 AS t1
INNER JOIN dbo.table2 AS t2 ON t1.equipnum = t2.equipnum
INNER JOIN dbo.table3 AS t3 ON t2.projectID = t3.projectID
                           AND t2.equipnum = t3.equipnum;
