How move content fieldA to fieldB WHEN fieldC='X'

2 New Member
I tried:
UPDATE `tablename` SET `fieldA` = `fieldB`
WHERE fieldC = 'X';

in different combinations of fieldnames with/without _`_

I got: "Getroffen rijen: 0 (Query duurde 0.0011 sec)".

In normal language:
The group tablerows where fieldC has the value X
should have the content of fieldB in fieldA.

I found the technical term 'self-join' but
couldnt do much with it.\(Neither did I find examples that came close.

TIA4 any help ...

I ran the same update and it worked perfectly allright, as it should, with and without back-ticks!
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. UPDATE `tablename` SET `fieldA` = `fieldB` 
  2. WHERE fieldC = 'X';
Maybe your fieldC does not contain a value 'X' or has a different data type.

Another provider with a more modern MySQL
"MySQL answered:

#1054 - Unknown column 'X' in 'where clause'"

Can't be that modern. How do you get an 'unknown column X' where you don't use a column X? You must use a different query then the one shown.

Hello All, I have a comma delimited text file, which I would like to move into a SQL 2000 table . I created a DTS package in SQL Server and saved it as a VB.bas .

However , it seems that there is a pretty big change in how VB is written and how C#.net is written. Does anyone have an example of using DTS and C# to move a few...

I was asked to do this.... Dynamically move "text1" and "hidden1" into the "form1" ..... Not by creating new elements, but moving the "text1" and "hidden1" elements into the form using javascript, after i click the submit button.... So if i loop the "form1", i can get the values for "text1" and "hidden1" too..... Is that possible ?
