SQL:  Conditional Update

Posted on 2014-02-06

Attached is a screenshot of a database table called FRACK.

I'm looking for help creating a SQL update statement which would compare timestamps in columns RACKED and CHILLROOMSCAN.  If the CHILLROOMSCAN is an earlier date than the RACKED date, I would like to increment the CHILLROOMSCAN value by 1 day, leaving the hour/min/sec AM/PM details unchanged.  

If the CHILLROOMSCAN value is the same date or later than the RACKED value, then no change should take place.

Can someone help?

I see where you're going, but the script error returns column not found:  dd.  Any suggestions?

dd is not a column and it is to increment by day. Are you working in MS SQL or MYSQL?

update frack set chillroomscan = dateadd(day,1,chillroomscan)
