Hi,

I need to insert 'NK' into all empty fields in mysql table. I know how to do this column by column, but is there any simple code to do this?

I mean something like: Check all the records in 'users' table and replace empty values with 'NK'.

Thanks for any help.

I'd suggest writing a script to do it or just build the SQL statements you need and run those.  

You also have to be concerned about the data type of each column. You can't just go stick an 'NK' into a column defined as an int, for example.
