Subject Understanding an UPDATE
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2012 01:19:25 GMT

When I run the following SQL statements in JavaDB:


drop table t1;
drop table t2;

create table t1 ( TXT1 varchar(6), ID integer );

create table t2 ( ID integer, TXT2 varchar(12));

insert into t1 (TXT1,id) values ('ONE',1);
insert into t1 (TXT1,id) values ('TWO',2);

insert into t2 (id,TXT2) values (2,'TWO');
insert into t2 (id,TXT2) values (3,'THREE');

UPDATE t1 SET TXT1 = (select (TXT2) FROM t2 WHERE (t2.ID = t1.ID));


then, table t1 has the following values:

            VAL1      ID
ROW 1: <NULL>      1
ROW 2: 'TWO'         2

Why is the value of column VAL1 in the first row set to <NULL> by the update
