The following code is fine for updating a text field for one record in a temp table....

update #tmpRecords set details = null

DECLARE @ptrval binary(16)
SELECT @ptrval = TEXTPTR(details) from #tmpRecords where recordId = 1

WRITETEXT #tmpRecords.details @ptrval 'valueEntered'

But how can I update each of the records in the table #tmpRecords all at once? Eg there could be 100 rows that need updating

This doesn't work but here's the SQL pseudocode:

Update #tmpRecords set details = WRITETEXT #tmpRecords.details @ptrval select details from tableThatHasTheValues

Thanks for any suggestions.....
