I am trying to update a table that has four columns.

I've tried the syntax: -
UPDATE table SET col4=value WHERE col1=val1, col2=val2, col3=val3;
but I get an error in syntax near col2=val2.

I've checked the MySQL documentation, but that only lists a single WHERE condition.

Is what I want to do possible, and if so how?
