Oracle sql updating multiple tables twitcasting online dating
when a row of a subset is lost/deleted/moved away from it, the whole subset will need to be reordered.This can be done similarily : SET @pos=0; UPDATE busstops SET pos = ( SELECT @pos := @pos 1 ) WHERE route = 1 ORDER BY pos ASCChris H (chansel0049) I experienced a weird issue converting from 4 to 5.A is a normal table, B is a temporary table: Worked in 4update A, B set A.population=B.pop_count where A.id=In version 5, however, the above query only updated one element while still matching "all"In 5 I had to do it like this:update A RIGHT JOIN B on A.id=set A.population=B.pop_count Updates all population counts correctly.[edit: RIGHT JOIN not LEFT JOIN...] Related to the post of Mohamed Hossam on May 9 2005 am A more general method to updtate more one row: UPDATE table SET f1='foo', f2= IF(f3=value,‘one’, IF(f3=value_bis,’two’,f2)) WHERE f5='afected' This set the values of field 'f2' according to the values of field 'f3' in the rows field f5 'afected'.Here is a way to use multiple tables in your UPDATE statement, but actually copying one row values into the other, meaning, we're using the same table: UPDATE jobs AS to Table, jobs AS from Table SET to Table.job_type_id = from Table.job_type_id, to Table.job_company_id = from Table.job_company_id, to Table.job_source = from Table.job_source, WHERE (to Table.job_id = 6) AND (from Table.job_id = 1)--------------Pretty cool.UPDATE tbl_name SET fld2 = CASE fld1WHEN val1 THEN data1WHEN val2 THEN data2ELSE fld2 ENDThe note is: do not forget ELSE.If you do not use it, all rows that are outside the range of your updated values will be set to blank!
This option takes a list of one or more partitions or subpartitions (or both).Ideal when writing a script is just too much effort.Sometimes you have a lot of processes that could be updating a column value in a table. ID=54321 Here's a workaround for the update/subquery/cant do self table "bug"Senario is, ID 8 has multiple records, only the last (highest) record needs to be changedupdate t1 set c1 = ' NO'where id='8'order by recno desc limit 1I would prefer update t1 set c1=' NO' WHERE ID=8 AND RECNO = (SELECT MAX(RECNO) FROM T1 WHERE ID=8)But that's not currently allowed If you want to update a table based on an aggregate function applied to another table, you can use a correlated subquery, for example: UPDATE table1 SET table1field = (SELECT MAX(table2.table2field) FROM table2 WHERE table1.table1field = table2.table2field)This can be helpful if you need to create a temporary table storing an ID (for, say, a person) and a "last date" and already have another table storing all dates (for example, all dates of that person's orders).order by recno desc limit 1You can also accomplish the same by the following query :update t1 , (select id ,max(recno) as recno from t1 where id=8 group by recno) ttset t1.c1 = ' NO'where tt.id=t1and t1.recno=tt.recno Comments are welcome.The @value := col will always evaluate to true and will store the col value before the update in the @value variable.
