assuming the ID is the join criteria between the two tables, this will do it:

UPDATE AA
SET AA.Polcinumber = BB.Policynumber
FROM BB
WHERE AA.ID = BB.ID
AND AA.Polcinumber <> BB.Policynumber

Thanks Lowel,


how to insert the currentdate into AA table with new policy number


just expand the number of columns being updated;

...
SET AA.Polcinumber = BB.Policynumber,
Column2 = GetDate(), --a function fromt eh server
Column3 = 'Approved', --a static value
Column4 = BB.SomeOtherColumn -- a value in the other table

DELETE aa
FROM aa
INNER JOIN bb
ON bb.ID = aa.ID

SET IDENTITY_INSERT aa ON

INSERT INTO aa (Id,Policynumber,date)
SELECT Id,Policynumber,date
FROM bb

SET IDENTITY_INSERT aa OFF
