You're going to have a problem as it looks like you want to update a join key on the PO Table

Why do you want to update the PO Table? Which column do you want to update?

Consider normalizing these tables in future.
For now, Check if this works:

Update POTable
set Buyer = PO.Name
FROM POTable PO inner join BuyerTable BT
ON PO.Buyer = BT.Buyer
Go
