Dear Sir
I want to replace "TextString" field attribute values with "Name_Sin" attribute values in an another table.
for that  I wrote a script to join two tables and calculate the attributes. But the expression is something wrong.
I have no idea to correct it. So please  help me to correct it.

Thanks

My Script
arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management("PCL_Anno", "PCL_Anno_Lyr")
arcpy.AddJoin_management("PCL_Anno_Lyr", "Text", r"C:\CMSupport.gdb\Conv_Tab", "Nam_Idm", "KEEP_ALL")
arcpy.CalculateField_management("PCL_Anno_Lyr", "TextString", "!TextString! = !Name_Sin!", "PYTHON_9.3", "")
arcpy.CopyFeatures_management("PCL_Anno_Lyr", "PCL_Anno_New")

Error Message
