multi-part identifier error?

I have 2 different tables in the same database.
tblInvoice
tblTemp

The tables are similar:
tblInvoice
      ID,
      UserID,
      Date,
      Volume

tblTemp
      ID,
      UserID,
      Date,
      AdjVolume

where the userID and Date are the same UserID and Date from each table, with



UPDATE tblInvoice
SET tblGasInvoice.[ Volume] = tblTemp.Volume
WHERE tblTemp.UserID = tblInvoice.UserID AND
tblTemp.Date = tblInvoice.Date

I get the following error:
Msg 4104,
The multi-part identifier "tblTemp.UserID" could not be bound.
Msg 4104,
The multi-part identifier "tblTemp.Date" could not be bound.

I wrote out the code using intellisense in SMS to make sure there were no typos in the naming

Any ideas?
Thanks for your help!

UPDATE tblInvoice
SET tblGasInvoice.[Volume] = tblTemp.AdjVolume
WHERE tblTemp.UserID = tblInvoice.UserID AND
tblTemp.Date = tblInvoice.Date

There was an extra space in [ Volume]
tblTemp doesn't have [Volume], it has AdjVolume

Also, you may have to change Date to [Date]

Sorry my mistake in drafting the question.
tblGasInvoice.[Volume] = tblTemp.AdjVolume    is what I should have typed!

You need to include all needed tables in the from clause to be able to use their column name. something like the following code ( I am not sure about the logic as I don't know table structure of all your tables):

UPDATE tblGasInvoice
SET Volume = t.AdjVolume
FROM tblGasInvoice g
INNER JOIN tblInvoice i ON g.InvoiceID = i.ID
INNER JOIN tblTemp t ON t.UserID = i.UserID AND t.[Date] = i.[Date]

Repost with correction... thank for the eyes eghtbas!
I have 2 different tables in the same database.
 tblInvoice
 tblTemp

 The tables are similar:
 tblInvoice
       ID,
       UserID,
       Date,

 tblTemp
       ID,

       AdjVolume

 where the userID and Date are the same UserID and Date from each table, with



 UPDATE tblInvoice
 SET tblInvoice.[Volume] = tblTemp.AdjVolume
 WHERE tblTemp.UserID = tblInvoice.UserID AND
 tblTemp.Date = tblInvoice.Date

 I get the following error:

As I said in the previous comment From clause is missing, you need to include tblInvoice, tblGasInvoice and tblTemp in the from clause and relate them together.

Also you need to write UPDATE tblGasInvoice instead of UPDATE tblInvoice if you want to update it's column.

UPDATE tblInvoice as inv
  Inner join tblTemp as tmp
  on (inv.UserID = tmp.UserID AND inv.Date = tmp.Date)
  inner join tblGasInvoice as gas
  on inv.UserID = gas.UserID
 SET inv.[Volume] = tmp.AdjVolume

There is no tblGasInvoice, that was a mistake I tried to correct a couple of posts ago...
 tblInvoice
        ID,
        UserID,
        Date,
        Volume

  tblTemp
        ID,
        UserID,
        Date,
        AdjVolume

  where the userID and Date are the same UserID and Date from each table, with



  UPDATE tblInvoice
  SET tblInvoice.[Volume] = tblTemp.AdjVolume
  WHERE tblTemp.UserID = tblInvoice.UserID AND
  tblTemp.Date = tblInvoice.Date

Sorry about the confusion...I really messed up the original post!
