Recently, for a project I am working on, I needed a conditional
update of one column's value with the value of a different column
part of the conditional. Luckily, this is possible and the syntax
is what I expected it to be. In my specific case I wanted to
keep track of the total times an object was updated, and the number
of times it has been updated on the current list. Hence I needed
two counters: one for the total number of updates, and one that's
reset to 0 each time the
list_id changes. Both columns
where set default to zero. An outline of the SQL statement I use
Read the rest of ON DUPLICATE KEY with IF.
