merge into tmp_cal_obj e1
          using cal_book e2

FROM source_table

or this s
merge into cms_equipment eq
     using (select *
              from (select row_number () over (partition by trim (stg.equipment_id), vpf.vpf_company_nr order by null) rn,
                           vpf.vpf_company_nr,
                           trim (stg.equipment_id) as equipment_id,
                           stg.equipment_type,
                           nvl (stg.installation_date, stg.effective_date) as installation_date,

                           stg.ti_software,
                           stg.projector_serial,

                           stg.watermarking,
                           stg.system3d,
                           stg.server_model,
                           stg.server_serial
                      from cms_equip_staging stg, cms_vpf_company vpf
                     where upper (trim (stg.vpf_company_name)) = upper (trim (vpf.vpf_company_name)) and upper (trim (stg.data_load_status)) = 'NEW')
             where rn = 1) estg
        on (upper (trim (estg.equipment_id)) = upper (trim (eq.equipment_id)) and eq.vpf_company_nr = estg.vpf_company_nr)
when matched
then
)
WHERE cnt = 1

Open in new window

so i can ignore duplicate values

What description from cal_book should be the 'correct' one?

The one using row_number() is the approach I would take.  

I assume you copied it and don't know how to rewrite it to use your tables?

Try this:
merge into tmp_cal_obj e1
          using (
          	select obj_name, description from
          	(
          		select obj_name, description, row_number() over(partition by obj_name order by description) rn from cal_book
          	)
          	where rn=1
) e2
          on (e1.obj_name = e2.obj_name)
          when matched then update set e1.description = e2.description;

You still need to decide on which description is the correct one.
