I'm new to sql and have achieved simple table upates before but with this one I keep running into trouble. Please ignore the data format it is accurate, just the syntax hang up for whatever reason.

All variotions of wrapping the data come up with 'near "-": syntax error', I am using SQLiteSpy to modify the database in question.

Any advice very welcome.


UPDATE EventTable
 SET Date='D.+19110402..+00000000..' , SortDate='6705438749380050956'
  WHERE Date='D.+19110000..+00000000..' AND EventType='18';

Try square brackets around Date as that's a reserved word.

Sorry, I'm not spotting anything wrong from a T-SQL perspective. Have no idea what SQLiteSpy is. You might want to post your question on a site that specializes in that technology. We specialize in Microsoft SQL Server here.
