I'm trying to do some very basic SQL updates on this FileMaker DB I'm working with and for some reason I can't get around this parse error 1200.

The table I'm working with in FileMaker is called Gourock Invoice.  I'm getting parse errors every time I try and update via SQL and I can't figure out where my problem is.

Here's one example...

UPDATE Gourock Invoice
                         SET g_PayPal_Error_Code = 10002,
                                g_PayPal_Short_Message = 'Security error',
                               g_PayPal_Long_Message = 'Security header is not valid'
                         WHERE id_invoice = 133987

g_PayPal_Error_Code is a number field, as is id_invoice (although I have tried adding quotes around those values as well).  

Here's another...

UPDATE Gourock Invoice
                     SET Credit card Authorization = '8Y781148UU567701C',
                     Card Number = '************5916'
                     WHERE id_invoice = '133987'

Card Number is indeed a text field.  I'm getting parse errors on both of these.   Apparently I need another pair of eyes to help me figure out what I'm doing wrong here.  I work with SQL all the time and I simply can't find my problem.
