Over the next few days we are going to start the migration to a new forum application. I'm going to start with high post count and active users. You may receive an invitation to the new forums. It's not spam. It's just me trying to seed the user base. My goal is to open it up over the weekend.

Once we open the site we'll block registrations here. We should be open shortly on the new site.

I have 2 tables: table1 with columns column1(PK,int,notnull),column2(nvarchar(30),null),column3(smallint,null)
table2 with columns column1(nvarchar(40),null),column2(smallint,null).

I want to update table1.column2 with the data from table2.column1
where table1.column3 = table2.column2
I have an updatequery like this:
UPDATE
table1
SET
table1.column2 = table2.column1
FROM
table1
INNER JOIN
table2
ON
table1.column2 = table2.column1
WHERE
table1.column3 = table2.column2

But this doesn' work.
Any advice?
John

FROM table1
INNER JOIN table2

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
