I don't know how to update a temp table with another temp table

for example I have #tempdashboard that has info in it.
I also have #tempappscount of which I want to insert the info inside it into #tempdashboard

I believe the column in #tempdashboad is
DailyAppsIn INT,

I did a query that gave me the number of daily apps created. I was told to create #tempappscount and my query to dump into #tempappsaccount. Then dump the info from #tempappsaccount into #tempdashboard.

Clueless but still trying to learn. Thanks

how to update a temp table with another temp table

would be something like

SET DailyAppsIn =a.appcountfield
FROM #tempappscount a
INNER JOIN #tempdashboard d
ON d.relatedcol = a.relatedcol

relatedcol is column(s) by which two tables are related
