Surely that should be

UPDATE Items set stockLevel = '99', isRedordered = 'false' Where items.ItemID = 'ID496'

?

and is there a typo here?

>>sRedordered<<

Sure
           where items.ItemID = ID496

is right?

Shouldn't that be
           where items.ItemID = 496
or
           Where items.ItemID = 'ID496'

Just as small remark: Why use a string field to express a boolean?  (cf. isRedordered = 'false')

Hey, hey, that's a quicky.
What was the solution now?

Did
       items.ItemID = 'ID496'

generate the error?
What about your null value then?
