okay been banging my head on this for a while.

there are a dozen fields in TableA that I want to update in to TableB (name of fields are the same)

The best I have been able to do is looping script that calls the SQL UPDATE for each row. I make 2 tables A & B, each has the field ID, F1 & F2. ID is number, F1 & F@ are text. I used different plugin but the SQL should be the same. The attached file has the script.
