    Appending string to z30-barcode for a particular set of ADM numbers

    Description:
    I have a list of 1,000 ADM sys numbers and I would like to append the string "-XVU" to the current z30_barcode. There is only a single item attached to each to each ADM record. What SQL statement would do this?

    Resolution:
    You would need to import these ADM numbers into an Oracle table (defined in ABC50). This is described in the document "Importing p_ret_01 output into SQL" in the How To folder on the Doc Portal.

    You can skip the "p_ret_01" section; start with "Defining temporary sql file".

    Then you would use the table ("tempadmnumrec") consisting of one column "admkey") like this:

    update z30 set z30_barcode = rtrim (z30_barcode) || '-XVU' where substr(z30.z30_rec_key,1,9) in (select admkey from tempadmnumrec);

    Be sure to back up the z30 table with p_file_03 before doing this. Contact Jerry Specht with any question.
