Find & Replace Data within phpMyAdmin

Hello ...

I'm trying to find a replace forward slashes with back slashes within a specific field  on a mysql table.

The SQL i'm using is as follows within phpMyadmin

UPDATE images_T SET image_path = replace(image_path, "\", "/");

Open in new window

But when I try this I receive the following message

ERROR: Unclosed quote @ 70
STR: "
SQL: UPDATE xcart_images_T_bck SET image_path = replace(image_path, "\", "/");

Any Ideas?

Many Thanks

It may be thinking you are escaping the quote ... try
UPDATE images_T SET image_path = replace(image_path, "\\", "/");
