Set Quantity = Quantity - @Value 
Where ID=@ID

i hv used this query bt its showing syntax error...can u help me with this
String query = "update Asset SET Unit= " +(asset.Unit-store.Quantity) + " where ItemCode = '" + asset.ItemCode;

This is the wrong forum, please post future SQL questions to the MSSQL forum (or respective rdbms).

Try a query like this:

Update Asset
Set Unit = Asset.Unit -
(
  Select Sum(Store.Quantity)
  From Store
  Where Store.ItemCode = Asset.ItemCode
)

The above query will work for a 1-to-1 or a 1-to-many relationship since you did not provide information on how the tables are joined.
