I need to change the text within a couple of records where the data contains the word "Annual" and change it to "Open"

declare @var1
@var1 = 'Open'

SELECT [ResourceSet]
      ,[ResourceType]
      ,[CultureCode]
      ,[ResourceKey]
      ,[ResourceValue]
      ,[Category]
      ,[Translated]
  FROM [bcdevtraining].[dbo].[cm_resource_core]
--UPDATE [bcdevtraining].[dbo].[cm_resource_core]
--   SET [ResourceValue] = 'Open Enrollment'
where [ResourceValue] like '%Annual Enrollment%'
GO
First record  = It's {0} &  @var1 &  'Enrollment through {1}. This is your opportunity to change your benefit elections, add or modify dependents, and change beneficiaries for {0}.
Second record = Begin Your Annual Enrollment Now!

Why do you need to use variable if that's all you need to do and an update like you described (and enclosed below) will do what you need to:

UPDATE [bcdevtraining].[dbo].[cm_resource_core]
  SET [ResourceValue] = 'Open Enrollment'
where [ResourceValue] like '%Annual Enrollment%'

Is there a Way to do a Mass update searching for all instances of "Annual Enrollment" and update the just that portion of the text with "Open Enrollment"?

Sure and sorry my bad for the first posting - this must do it - use the REPLACE sql function

UPDATE [bcdevtraining].[dbo].[cm_resource_core]
  SET [ResourceValue] = replace([ResourceValue],'Annual Enrollment','Open Enrollment')
WHERE [ResourceValue]='%Annual Enrollment%'

OR you can reduce it to just the two words you mentioned:


UPDATE [bcdevtraining].[dbo].[cm_resource_core]
  SET [ResourceValue] = replace([ResourceValue],'Annual ','Open ')
WHERE [ResourceValue]='%Annual%'
