Change User Password in SQL2008

I am trying to change a user password in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio for SQL2008.  Thought I had the correct syntax but apparently not:

update ClientUsers set Password = 'XXX' where ID = 'user'

Error:

Msg 245, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Conversion failed when converting the varchar value 'bbportalwebuser' to data type int.

I can only assume I am using wrong syntax.
 
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio                                    10.0.4000.0
Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools                                    10.0.4000.0

Thank you.

can you post the schema for the clientUsers table ?  It looks like it's a casting error.

I use SQL once every three to four years and I have no idea how to do that.  Wish I did.

You should be able to right click the table and select "Script Table as" -> "CREATE To" -> "New Query Editor Window" and then copy/paste what it gives you.

there we go!  Try this:

use BBNC;
go

update ClientUsers set Password = N'XXX' where UserName = N'user';

Open in new window


edit:

you may also want to go and remove the post with the database creation script.  never want to leave more information about your architecture than necessary =)

Can you try searching for the user using their firstname/lastname to make they exist/the username is right?

select 
   firstname,
   lastname,
   username
from 
   clientUsers
where 
   firstname = N'<their firstname here>' and
   lastname = N'<their lastname here>';
