Hi,
I have a table with 5 image columns

image1, image2, image3, image4 & image5  
 
which have been copied from a previous record with id ='782' and contain the following values


/uploads/item_782_1.jpg
/uploads/cat_food_782_2.jpg
/uploads/cat_food_782_3.jpg
uploads/nopic.jpg
uploads/nopic.jpg

is there an easy way to change these values with the new record id of '1072' using either a MySQL satement or PHP?

/uploads/item_1072_1.jpg
/uploads/cat_food_1072_2.jpg
/uploads/cat_food_1072_3.jpg
uploads/nopic.jpg
uploads/nopic.jpg

Thanks

Perhaps something like this. I've assumed there will be an underscore on either side of the id in the filename:

update my_table
set image1 = REPLACE(image1, '_782_', '_1072_'),
image2 = REPLACE(image2, '_782_', '_1072_'),
image3 = REPLACE(image3, '_782_', '_1072_'),
image4 = REPLACE(image4, '_782_', '_1072_'),
image5 = REPLACE(image5, '_782_', '_1072_')
where id = 1072
