Update Multiple Rows

I'm trying to UPDATE multiple rows in a single statement. I've seen some examples but to me they don't seem to apply to my scenario. Below is my original SQL:

UPDATE AIM.AIMRetrieve dItem
SET ImageFront=NULL ,
ImageFrontSize= NULL,
ImageFrontType= NULL,
ImageBack=NULL,
ImageBackSize=N ULL,
ImageBackType=N ULL
WHERE AIM.AIMRetrieve dItem.ArchiveRe trievalID = (SELECT
AIM.AIMRETRIEVE DITEM.ARCHIVERE TRIEVALID
FROM
AIM.ARCHIVERETR IEVAL,
AIM.AIMRETRIEVE DITEM
WHERE
AIM.AIMRETRIEVE DITEM.ARCHIVERE TRIEVALID = AIM.ARCHIVERETR IEVAL.ARCHIVERE TRIEVALID
AND AIM.ARCHIVERETR IEVAL.EXPIRATIO NDATE < DATE(CURRENT TIMESTAMP))

When I run this query, I get the multiple recordset error.

I would welcome any suggestions or ideas on how to rectify the problem.

Thanks in advance...

Also take a look at the MERGE statement. It doesn't require the double
select

Cheers

Greetings, Fairly new to c# and Im looking for pointers on a few topics: Im curious as to general methods to update multiple rows in a database.

I think I'm seeing table-level lock contention in the following function when I have many different concurrent callers, each with mutually distinct values for $1. Is there a way to reimplement this function using select-for-update (or equivalent) in order to get a row-level lock (and thus less contention) while maintaining the function interface? The docs seem to suggest so, but it's not clear how to return the SETOF queued_item and also...

So I have some data that I want to put into a table. If the row already exists (as defined by the primary key), I would like to update the row. Otherwise, I would like to insert the row. I've been doing something like delete from foo where name = 'xx'; insert into foo values('xx',1,2,...);
