MySQL Question

How do I update a table with fields selected from another table?

Although there are many questions similar to this, such as
"Updating a record from another table", but i could not get this working.

I have a query that selects and updates table

sem_stdexamfinresmark
. The select subquery returns multiple rows of data whose size may not be equal to the table being updated, but the update is now working.

The query looks like :

update sem_stdexamfinresmark sr,
(select
se.currsession,
str.studentid,
str.classid,
str.subjectid,
str.aggScore*(select gbtp.percentage from gb_termpercentage gbtp where gbtp.termname = se.examtype)/100 as aggPer,
str.aggGrade
from
sem_stdexamtermresr str,
sem_exam se
where
str.examid=se.examid and
se.examtype = 'Second Term' and
se.currsession =1 and classid='8'
) s
set
sr.SecondTermMark = s.aggPer and
sr.SecondTermGrade = s.aggGrade
where
sr.studentid=s.studentid and
sr.subjectid=s.subjectid and
s.currsession = s.currsession and
sr.classid='8';





EDIT:

update sem_stdexamfinresmark
set
sr.SecondTermMark = s.aggPer and
sr.SecondTermGrade = s.aggGrade
from
(select
se.currsession,
str.studentid,
str.classid,
str.subjectid,
str.aggScore*(select gbtp.percentage from gb_termpercentage gbtp where gbtp.termname = se.examtype)/100 as aggPer,
str.aggGrade
from
sem_stdexamtermresr str,
sem_exam se
where
str.examid=se.examid and
se.examtype = 'Second Term' and
se.currsession = 1 and classid='8'
) s
where
sr.studentid=s.studentid and
sr.subjectid=s.subjectid and
s.currsession =1 and
sr.classid='8';
select * from sem_exam;
update sem_exam set currsession =1;

Answer

This is what happens when one loses sleep :( I just did a silly mistake here and added "and"
