You can specify a scalar subquery in the same way that you specify a column or constant in the SET clause of an UPDATE request.

The following example specifies a scalar subquery in its SET clause:

     UPDATE sales_sum_table AS sst
     SET  total_sales = (SELECT SUM(amount)
                         FROM sales_table AS s
                         WHERE s.day_of_sale BETWEEN sst.period_start 
                                             AND     sst.period_end);
