Hi,
I need to add a forward slash "/" to all image fields in MySQL table only where they don't already exits.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `items_test` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `image1` varchar(60) DEFAULT '/uploads/nopic.jpg',
  `image2` varchar(60) DEFAULT '/uploads/nopic.jpg',
  `image3` varchar(60) DEFAULT '/uploads/nopic.jpg',
  `image4` varchar(60) DEFAULT '/uploads/nopic.jpg',
  `image5` varchar(250) DEFAULT '/uploads/nopic.jpg',
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `id` (`id`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=1151 ;



INSERT INTO `items_test` (`id`, `image1`, `image2`, `image3`, `image4`, `image5`) VALUES
(802, 'uploads/item802_1.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg'),
(802, '/uploads/products_good.jpg', '/uploads/products_good2.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg'),
(891, 'uploads/new_image_1.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg', 'uploads/nopic.jpg');

Forget that, didn't see multiple fields

UPDATE
  items_test
SET
  image1 = IF (!(SUBSTR(image1, 1, 1)='/'), CONCAT('/',image1),image1),
  image2 = IF (!(SUBSTR(image2, 1, 1)='/'), CONCAT('/',image2),image2),
  image3 = IF (!(SUBSTR(image3, 1, 1)='/'), CONCAT('/',image3),image3),
  image4 = IF (!(SUBSTR(image4, 1, 1)='/'), CONCAT('/',image4),image4),
  image5 = IF (!(SUBSTR(image5, 1, 1)='/'), CONCAT('/',image5),image5)
