Update TABLE Fields with a unique GUID

Can someone please help me with a script, that updates a field with a unique GUID for about 400 records please.

Because of a bug with our current ERP system, I need to dump something unique into these fields as a temp fix.

chrisryhalAuthor Commented:
I already know it will accept a GUID because in my C# I'm generating one and stuffing it for NEW records, but this is just a fill in more or less.  Bluntly a pain in my butt is what it REALLY is (GRIN).

The datatype is datatype though is varchar(50)
