Noob question about a SQL Query

Hi all.

I think this is a fairly basic query but I mainly concern myself with general admin (backups etc) from the management studio.

Basically, I want to select a load of items from the Sales Price Table which are Customer Prices and have Expired. When I find them I want to set a custom field (Blocked Pending Price Check) on the corresponding item on the Item Table

My script to select the items in question is simple enough (and gives the desired result):

select [Item No_] from [MyCompany$Sales Price]
where [Ending Date] < '04/02/2015 00:00:00.000' and [Sales Type] = 0
and [Sales Code] = 'CustomerA'

This gives a list of all items that I want to set the flag on but I'm guessing I need to assign the above results to some sort of variable (let's call it 'A') such that I can do something along the lines of:

update [MyCompany$Item]
set [Blocked Pending Price Check] = 1 where No_ = A

Any help appreciated! [-o<

    update [MyCompany$Item]
    set [Blocked Pending Price Check] = 1 
    where No_  in
    (
      select [Item No_] from [MyCompany$Sales Price]
      where 
        [Ending Date] < '04/02/2015 00:00:00.000' 
        and [Sales Type] = 0
        and [Sales Code] = 'CustomerA'
    )

    Also - one other question :|

    Can I use an argument like TODAY() in Excel so that rather than typing the date longhand as in:

    where
    [Ending Date] < '04/02/2015 00:00:00.000'

    Can I somehow say where [Ending Date] < "TODAY" so that I can run this at any time (or even scheduled) without having to edit the query?

    I've worked it out:

    where [Ending Date] < (getdate())....

    Thanks.
