    Hello @Anandazure ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    In this article, we will help you to learn different methods that are used to update the data in a table with the data of other tables. The UPDATE from SELECT query structure is the main technique for performing these updates.

    In order to migrate your SQL DB to Azure Synapse Analytics, you need to plan your migration including schema and data assessment to ensure it is compatible with Azure Synapse. Also, in order to migrate your data you need to look into Migrate your data documentation.

    Additionally, dedicated SQL Pools support various loading methods include BCP, SQLBulkCopy API however Polybase external tables and the Copy statement are much faster and scalable way to load the data.

    Azure Synapse Pathway helps you upgrade to a modern data warehouse platform by automating the code translation of your existing data warehouse. It's a free, intuitive, and easy to use tool that automates the code translation enabling a quicker migration to Azure Synapse Analytics.


    For more details, refer to Azure Synapse Pathway overview.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
