UPDATE w
set w.local_service_order_id = so.Local_ID 
FROM work_order w
INNER JOIN service_order so ON so.Local_ID = w.local_service_order_id
WHERE w.service_order_id = 7525 and so.id = 7525

Please try this..

UPDATE work_order
set work_order.local_service_order_id = service_order.Local_ID
FROM work_order
INNER JOIN service_order ON service_order.Local_ID = work_order.local_service_order_id
WHERE work_order.service_order_id = 7525 and service_order.id = 7525

Kelvin - your SQL worked. Now how do I make it generic so that it updates for all values of xxx, where  work_Order.service_order_id = service_order.id

UPDATE work_order, service_order set local_service_order_id = Service_Order.Local_ID
 WHERE work_Order.service_order_id = xxx and service_order.id = xxx

ah, this works:

UPDATE work_order, service_order set local_service_order_id = Service_Order.Local_ID
  WHERE work_Order.service_order_id = service_order.id

right?

try this..to update all values.. (Make sure you have backup of the table you are updating.)

UPDATE work_order, service_order set local_service_order_id = Service_Order.Local_ID WHERE work_Order.service_order_id = service_order.id
