In this case, I have several tables which have a clientid of 30.
I need to find every single instance and switch those over to clientid 150.

I am using phpmyadmin in this case but can also do this from the command line if needed.

mysql-server-5.5.40

Quick and dirty..  For each of the tables you need to change:
UPDATE <tablename> SET clientid=150 WHERE clientid=30

Open in new window

Thank you. I'm amazed that I wasn't able to find something this simple when searching the net.
