Updating multiple rows at a time in sql server
The OUTPUT clause is not supported in any DML statements that target remote tables or views.
For more information, see OUTPUT Clause (Transact-SQL).
The CTE result set is derived from a simple query and is referenced by UPDATE statement.Specifies the condition to be met for the rows to be updated. If ANSI_PADDING is set to OFF, all trailing spaces are removed from data inserted into varchar and nvarchar columns, except in strings that contain only spaces. If ANSI_PADDING is set to ON, trailing spaces are inserted.The search condition can also be the condition upon which a join is based. The Microsoft SQL Server ODBC driver and OLE DB Provider for SQL Server automatically set ANSI_PADDING ON for each connection.Note Any call to OPENDATASOURCE, OPENQUERY, or OPENROWSET in the FROM clause is evaluated separately and independently from any call to these functions used as the target of the update, even if identical arguments are supplied to the two calls. Avoid using these hints in this context in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use them.In particular, filter or join conditions applied on the result of one of those calls have no effect on the results of the other.
