Hi Chandra,

Try this query

Code:
UPDATE Table1 A                   
SET A.Column1  = (SELECT B.Column1 FROM
Table B WHERE                     
A.PrimarykeyColumn =B. PrimarykeyColumn)                             
WHERE                                         
A.Column1 = ' ' 


Let me know if this works

Thanks
Sai
