Populate a new field in an existing table
Write a query to do an insert into that column for each row...
Update MyTable Set [Financial Year] = "2009-10" Where [Financial Year] IS
By the way, I strongly advise against using any column name with an embedded
"Give someone a fish and they eat for a day; teach someone to fish and they
eat for a lifetime".
I have an existing Access table, containing 10,000+ rows called "Printing"
and I have decided to insert a new column called "Financial Year". However,
I am struggling of finding a way to instantly populate this field with the
value "2009-10", without going into each row (I have three more tables to do
this to with 30,000+ rows)
Going forward it will be populated with all the other fields, but I just
need to bring them all up to date first.
Can anyone help out?
Thanks for reading.
