Hello! I have a table1 with field1 and field2 and a table2 with field1. I want to set table1.field2 = 1 where table1.field1 exists in table2.field1. I am getting a syntax error though. Can someone tell me how I would write a query that essentially puts a 1 in field2 where field1 values exist in this other table's field? Thanks
