Hi,

I am writing a query to update table variable. It is throwing me some error.

I have a table variable declared and inserted the data with three columns. I want to update col1 of that table variable when the second column of that table variable= one column from a physical table

update @MYtabvar set @Mytabvar.LatestDate=B.LatestDate from TableB B where @Mytabvar.id=B.ID

Try this instead


update m
   SET LatestDate=B.LatestDate
   FROM TableB B
      INNER JOIN @Mytabvar m
      ON m.id=B.ID



This is completely untested not having any table definitions and so forth.

Aside from having a working solution, do you understand why your query was wrong?

You cannot reference a table variable in the same way you do a table, you MUST use an alias as in Jason's code if you want to prefix a column.

    Good point and thanks for following up on that.

    Actually I think I am doing some thing wrong here.

    Actually I declared variable as table and inserted some values into that table variables from select statement of output from two tables.

    Then I write the update statement.

    So it is failing. It is asking for the declare statement again.

    A table variable, like any other variable, is only in scope until the end of the batch. If you run the table variable declare, then as another batch run the update, the update will fail. Same as if you first ran a declare of any other variable, then ran later a query using that variable.

    You can't run this:
    DECLARE @i INT

    then later highlight and run this and expect it to work
    SET @i = 0

    Table variables have the same scoping rules as any other variable.

    And be aware that if you have batch separators (GO) the variables will go out of scope.

    Yes. I am aware of Go statement but here I am not using any batch terminator.

    Declare @Myvar Tab(Id int, Latesttime DateTime)
    Insert into @Myvar (Id, LatestTime)
    (select Id, Latesttime from TableA A join TableC C where A.Name=C.Name....)

    Update @Myvar
       SET V.LatestTIme=B.LatestDate
       FROM TableB B
          INNER JOIN @Myvar V
          ON V.id=B.ID
    Go
