HI,

id is the primary key of my database:

I want to run a query where I alter all values from column "name" where id values betweeen 100 and 500.

let's say I want to change all names from database for ids between 100 and 500 ?

How this query is?

Use the following (and easy) UPDATE statement:

UPDATE table SET name = 'Yor new value' WHERE id BETWEEN 100 and 500

More info about MySQL syntax is e.g. here: http://dev.mysql.com

Hi,

Im getting error, here is the query with real values:

Whats wrong? I get this:

Error Code : 1064
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'table SET category = 'Marketing and Ads' WHERE ide BETWEEN 22809 and 24066' at line 1
UPDATE TABLE SET category = 'Marketing and Ads' WHERE ide BETWEEN 22809 AND 24066

Open in new window

Replace TABLE with the name of your table, so if your table is called MyData, then it should be

UPDATE MyData SET category = 'Marketing and Ads' WHERE ide BETWEEN 22809 AND 24066

Also make sure that your id column is really called ide as you have above ;)
