Friends, i have 2 dbs (db1 and db2). I need to copy the sum of points from player column to score with the following query:

update db1.dbo.player_info set score=sum(db2.dbo.player.points) where player_id=db2.dbo.player.member_id


I've tried this one:

update db1.dbo.player_info set score =(select sum(points)
FROM db2.dbo.player)
WHERE player_id = (select member_id
FROM db2.dbo.player)


but it gives me an error

Msg 468, Level 16, State 9, Line 1
Cannot resolve the collation conflict between "Chinese_PRC_CI_AS" and "SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS" in the equal to operation.


I've also tried this two:

update db1.dbo.player_info set score =(select sum(points) collate Chinese_PRC_CI_AS
FROM db2.dbo.player)
WHERE player_id = (select member_id
FROM db2.dbo.player)


...

update db1.dbo.player_info set score =(select sum(points) collate SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS
FROM db2.dbo.player)
WHERE player_id = (select member_id
FROM db2.dbo.player)


but it gives me the same error.

UPDATE pi
SET score = SumOfPoints
FROM db1.dbo.player_info pi
JOIN (SELECT member_id, sum(points) SumOfPoints
	FROM db2.dbo.player
	GROUP BY member_id
     ) p
ON pi.player_id = p.member_id collate SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS

If you get error again, put collate SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS option next to player_id in the condition
