Can someone please tell me what update command I need in order to do this? I will need to do a mass change to all records with the following operation ID "1AC_"
Where Description is "RECIEVING" changed to read "RECEIVING / PRELIMINARY INSPECTION"
There are probably over 3 thousands records so I was wondering if someone could please tell me a querry to update the description on the table for specific records (operation ID "1AC_" )

Here is the table:

Thank you for your responce.
The Operation_Id always starts with "1AC_" but it has other characters attached to it like:

1AC_692545-17/-18
1AC_3886225
1AC_319545
 ...

And also the description is either like "RECEIVING:" (with collon) and in some cases "RECEIVING" (without the collon).

Can you please help?

Thank you,
Paul
