Updating a result set Free live cams no sign up no credit card
Notes: That index addition is necessary because on larger tables my SQL would rather die than figure to (internally) index a single column join.I was not able, using my SQL 4.1.1, to do this as a subquery: UPDATE Groups LEFT JOIN (SELECT Group Id, MIN(Val Within Group) AS base Val FROM Groups GROUP BY Group Id) AS Grp Sum USING (Group Id) SET Val Within Group=Val Within Group-base Val; Csaba Gabor UPDATE Syntax with "on-line" updating value limitations.
Updating a result set
You could then do select @value;in order to see what the value was before you updated it My SQL uses Watcom (Oracle) syntax for UPDATE, so it's possible to write something like:update Table1 t1 join Table2 t2 on t1. When done, you "clear" the semaphore by UPDATE table SET value = 0 WHERE name = 'name' The assumption is that the UPDATE is "atomic" in that no concurrent access by another process can occur between testing and setting the value field.
[I have posted this in the Flow Control Functions page last year but I still see people asking how to update multiple rows.
Adam Boyle's commment above was just what I was trying to do, update one table based on a relationship between that table and another.
His example was:update t1,t2 set t1.field=t2.value where t1.this=t2.that; That strikes me as an elegant syntax.
If you do not use it, all rows that are outside the range of your updated values will be set to blank!
