Hi Guys,

I need a SQL query that'd be able to do a lookup in a secondary table (such as VLookup in Excel), but I'd like to store the value in the primary table.

For example:

I have a Primary "members" table (name, surname, ID number and card ID)
* Card ID column is blank for all members

From the Secondary table (ID number, Card ID), I'd like to run a query on ID number (from primary table) to lookup the Card ID, and store the corresponding Card ID in the primary "members" table.
