How to insert same text in one field for 10,000 records table


Hi

How can I insert a text (example: Yes) to the field (Approved) in a database table with 5 fields of 10,000 records instead of add one at a time?

Example:

Name Address Email Contact Numbers Approved
Edward 1111 1@1.com 11111111 No
Peter 1111 2@2.com 11111111 No


Thanks!

In most databases, you should be able to run a query something like the following, to set the Approved field to Yes for every record in tablename.

Code:
UPDATE tablename SET Approved = 'Yes';

Hi trevelluk

Thank you for code. Now I have another question. Someone has helped me with this php code for displaying 20 rows per page. If I want to edit a particular info like email or name in that page, how do I add the code for this listing so I can edit? If possible, can you show me the modified version. Thanks.

PHP Code:
<?php
  
include("config.php");
  
# new line to config or define in script
  
$limitvalue 20# max of 20 items per page
  #
  
print "<p class=head align=center>Listing</p>\n";
  
$dbConnect mysql_pconnect(null,$dbUserName ,$dbPassword);

  
$INFO['sql_db'] = "admin";
  
$INFO['sql_host'] = "localhost";

  
mysql_select_db($INFO['sql_db']) or die("Could not select database");

  
# get var from url
  
if (isset($_GET['page'])) {
      
$p $_GET['page'];
  } else {
      
$p 1# if no var in url show page 1
  
}
  
$startrow = ($p-1)*$limitvalue+1;
  
$query "SELECT * FROM Members WHERE Approved = 'No' And 1 ORDER BY 'UserID' DESC LIMIT $startrow$limitvalue";
  
$result mysql_query($query) or die('Error '.mysql_errno().' in query: <br />'.mysql_error().'<br />');

  while (
$row mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
      
$name $row['Fullname'];
      
$surname $row['Surname'];
      
$email $row['Email'];
      
$approved $row['Approved'];
      echo (
"
          <table width='95%' align='center'>
          <tr>
          <td class='outline' valign='top' style='padding-left:5px;'>
          <b>Full Name:</b> 
$surname $name<br />
          <b>Email:</b> 
$email<br />
          <b>Approved:</b> 
$approved<br />
          </td>
          </tr>
          </table>
          <br /> "
);
  }
$q mysql_query("select COUNT(UserID) AS t from Members");
$r mysql_fetch_assoc($q);
if (
$startrow $limitvalue $r['t']) {
//  if ($startrow + $limitvalue < mysql_num_rows($result)) { # if last showed value is not the last one show the link
$p++;
echo 
'<a href="'.$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'].'?page='.$p.'">Next page</a>' ;  }
  
?>

Hi

Is it possible to include editing while showing a list of 20 records? Or do I need to write another php to do the editing?

Thanks!

(sorry for delay in responding)

PHP isn't really one of my strong points to be honest, so I can't really help you with this. Sorry.

Hi

It is okay as I am just as new as you with PHP and MySQL.

Anyone else out there has an idea how I can include the EDIT feature beside individual listing of 20 records to update?

Thanks!
