I have Table A with 20000 rows and I need to update column B values in Table A from Table B's Col C values.

How can I achieve this in a single query?
Col A and Col K are primary keys in both table A and table B
Sample:
Table A
Col A Col K Col B
A a 23
B b 45
C c 56
D d 67
E e 12
F f 87

Update Table B Column B values from Table B column C values
Table B
Col A Col K Col C
A a 213
B b 425
C c 546
D d 667
E e 172
F f 887

Thanks
Sean Lange
