Dear all,

I have a question is it possible to update an exact symbol from a column?
Table A
[ID] int
[A] varchar(20) default['0000000000']

I want to update for example the 8th symbol from column [A] where id=1 as I keep the existing values of the other part of the string in column [A] e.g. 0001000100 something like that.

Thank you in advance!

update A set A = stuff(A,8,1,'1') where ID = 1

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
