Hi,

I had previouslly made a db with two columns, uid, and sname.  sname is currently all lowercase, but i need them now all uppercase. is there a way in mysql console to do this massive update easily?  

i *rather* not use a php strtoupper in the echo, but i guess i can make a loop that does the update for me?
