SQL Update Command VFP 6.0

SQL Update Command VFP 6.0

SQL Update Command VFP 6.0


I am trying to update rows of a table with information from a second table. I am using "Update" to do this. My question is can I use subqueries in the update statement. Th manual says I can but I am unable to find success. Here is the code I am using and I have tried various other combinations. With this line I get the error "Function name is Missing".

"update hrpersnl set hrpersnl.workcomp = (select abra.parent_box from Abra where abra.ID = hrpersnl.p_empno)"

Any help or a working example of the Update statement using a subquery would be appreciated.

Post the 2 dbf structures and the common indexes between them and I'm sure we will be able to help you.
