Hi, is there a way to update a table as follows: update tabe_name set name=name1 where oldname=1 name=name2 where oldname=2 name =name3 where oldname=3; Thanks, Sam

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could use the DECODE function.

Something like this:

<pre>UPDATE table_name
SET name = decode(oldname,1,name1,2,name2,3,name3)
WHERE oldname in (1,2,3);</pre>
