    Hi Everyone,

    Bear with me. I'm a novice when it comes to SQL but I'm wondering how exactly to do the following. I have access to mySQLAdmin under cPanel and using the wildcard option for the table lm_users I requested it find all emails in the DB that = '' -- I then hit GO and it actually generated for me all entries that exist in the database which actually match that criteria.

    Now the tricky part. I also noticed that mySQLAdmin generates the SQL code used to run that query. I also know that there is a field in that record called cnf which holds a state for the record where 1 means active and 2 means removed. Now this is what I want to do but not sure HOW TO DO IT...

    I would like to modify the existing query to SELECT all records that match my query (the exact email I request) but then I want to UPDATE the database by changing that one field cnf by setting it to the value of 2 for all records found. Can you do this all in one SQL command?

    Here's the initial query

    SELECT *
    FROM `lm_users`
    WHERE `email` = CONVERT( _utf8 ''
    USING latin1 )
    COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci
    LIMIT 0 , 30

    and here's the update that I want to add

    UPDATE `internet_listmailPro`.`lm_users` SET `cnf` = '2'

    Ideally then is all I need to change is the email and the those emails found would have their status
    changed from cnf=1 to cnf=2.

    How do I do this within the contact of using the mySQLAdmin interface.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Christopher :)
