Default copying values into a column from another table

Need a little help to try and get around my problem.
A nominal table in linux creates a priod eg nomhist_1206
I done an open query in a view to look @ this table but I have a n issue where the nomhist table has values in eg code1, code2, and in code3 but the next homhist table nomhist_1106 has in code1, code2 values are in code3 etc.

So I placed the view into a table then done a search and removed the to nulls then search for a value using if's and put it into a temp table.

I then set code1 to null hoping that I could update

code1 on the temp table to code1 but it doesn't seem to work.

Update f_TM1_nomhist_0105
Set code1 = b.code1
from f_TM1_nomhist_0105 a, #rob2 b
a.code1 is null

Its like a copy and paste!! delete code1's values then replace them with the temp table. It inserts 7500 in all rows??

Where do you use a join between those two tables?
