is there a predefined "constant" for the maximum integer value? I'd like to do something like: update myTable set myIntCol = #maxIntVal

Nope, there isn't.  But, you can create yourself a table and pull the value(s) you need from that....shoudl be easy enough to do.

Im sure the user knows the value, but doesn't want to have to remember it.....pulling from a table seems like an easy solution.
