Default UPDATE & JOIN (and WHERE)

Hi,

Can anyone help with this UPDATE statement please...?
Code:
UPDATE Stats
SET JobShownInResults = JobShownInResults + 1

WHERE Jobs.JobID IN 
(
 [Query that returns list of IDs]
)
From Stats
inner join Jobs
ON Jobs.JobId = Stats.ID
Can anyone help me?
No matter what I do with the join I get an 'incorrect syntax' error.

cheers,

Pete

There are few things you should look at on your update and determine if that is what you want to do.
Look at "Jobs.JobId = Stats.ID and
        "JobShownInResults + 1" are trying to Concatenate
        the columns or trying to add one to JobShownInResults

Take a look below and it may help.

update stats
set jobshownInresults='jobshownInresults'
from stats join jobs
on (stats.statsID=jobs.jobID)

Hi,

You can use either of the two queries to update the field JobShownInResults.

Option 1:
----------
UPDATE Stats
SET JobShownInResults = JobShownInResults + 1
WHERE ID IN
(SELECT Jobs.JobID FROM Jobs INNER JOIN Stats ON Jobs.JobID = Stats.ID)

Option 2:
----------
UPDATE Stats
SET JobShownInResults = JobShownInResults + 1
From Stats inner join Jobs ON Jobs.JobId = Stats.ID
WHERE Jobs.JobID IN
(
 [QUERY FOR LIST OF IDS ]
)


Hope this helps.
