Hi, Here is the details. I want to resolve this thru an query.

I have 2 tables :

table a-- emp barcode
123 555
124 666
table b-- emp1 barcode1
123 999
124 888

If the column emp = emp1 for the 1st row, then update the barcode with the barcode1. for exp:

The updated table for the 1st row will be as per below.
table a-- emp barcode
123 999
124 666
table b-- emp1 barcode1
123 999
124 888

like that it will continue o update whenever it matches the emp with emp1.
Thanks in advance.

what are the indexes for the two tables?

can there be duplicates in table 1 for emp a?
i.e.:
Code:

emp    barcode
123     12344556
123     12344555


same applies to table b.

if there is only one row per emp in both tables,
why not
Code:

UPDATE TABA A
SET BARCODE = (SELECT BARCODE
                 FROM TABB B
                WHERE A.EMPLNO = B.EMPLNO)
WHERE A.EMPLNO IN (SELECT EMPLNO
                   FROM TABB )

or
Code:

UPDATE TABA A
SET BARCODE = (SELECT BARCODE
                 FROM TABB B
                WHERE A.EMPLNO = B.EMPLNO)
WHERE exists ( select EMPLNO
                   FROM TABB B where A.EMPLNO = B.EMPLNO)

same thing, different performance. Which one is the best depends on several things. Just try them both.
