    The obvious answer would be via a JOIN.

    If the underlying database engine supports triggers, those are an option too.

    FWIW, updating one table as a result of modifying another smells like a schema design problem to me. Fixing the underlying problem that requires changes in one table to update values in another table would be a better fix in my opinion.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
