SQL - UPDATE using Inner Join

I'm trying to run the following command from my database:

UPDATE Atts a
INNER JOIN Users b ON a.UserId = b.UserId  
SET Email = "xxxxxxxx@xmail.com"
WHERE b.usertype = "yyyy" AND a.Xfer2Forms = "1" AND a.caseid = "1000"

However, I get the following error:
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near 'a'.

Is this a syntax issue?

You need to write it different. You cannot use a table plus alias directly after the UPDATE keyword (only either a table or an alias). And there needs to be a FROM clause.
UPDATE a
SET Email = 'xxxxx@xmail.com'
FROM Atts a
INNER JOIN Users b on a.UserId = b.UserId
WHERE b.usertype = 'yyyy' and a.Xfer2Forms = '1' and a.caseid = '1000'

Open in new window

BTW, you also used double quotes for string literals - that is wrong, you need to use single quotes.

Try This......

Update A Set A.Email='xxxxxxxx@xmail.com'
From Atts A
Inner Join Users b
ON a.UserId = b.UserId
WHERE b.usertype = 'yyyy'
AND a.Xfer2Forms = '1"'
AND a.caseid = '1000'
