I have a table that has a price_ea field and in this table some of the records have a value in this field.  But I want to update all of the prices to 0.  How can I do this with an update query?

UPDATE yourTableName
SET [Price_ea] = 0

But this will set ALL of the prices to 0.  If you only want to set those that don't already have a value (where the value is NULL), then you would use:

UPDATE yourTableName
SET [Price_ea] = 0
WHERE [Price_ea] IS NULL
0
