    Here is exact update :

    Update t_client a
    set cl001D = cl001D + (select sum(amount)
    from t_fh_fs b
    where a.clnbr = b.clnbr
    and b.department = 2
    )
    ;

    Table T_FH_FS has 1 to n transactions for each row of t_client.

    So what's wrong with the suggested update?

    update t_client a
    set cl001D =
    (select sum(amount)+a.cl001D
    from t_fh_fs b
    where a.clnbr = b.clnbr
    and b.department = 2);

    Gosh! Can you please run my update statement. It's not the same as yours, syntax is different and will not raise ORA-0093

    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong
