Inserting rows into a tableEdit

Updating rows in a tableEdit

To update rows in a table, write : update [table name] set [column name] = [your value];

It will update all the rows present in the table by the given value in the selected field.

We can also add queries to this command to make a real use for example,

update [table name] set [column name] = [value] where [column name]>=[value];

You can add your query after the where clause according to your need.
