I have a table like this structure:
1 row1 *
4 row2 *
I want to update the col1 field of the record with *. That means I need to update the first row of the distinct col2 field.
How can I do this with SQL Server 2000?
UPDATE sometable SET somecolumn = '*' WHERE col1 IN (SELECT MIN(col1) FROM sometable GROUP BY col2)
