Updating a Record in a Table Against All SQL Server Databases

Hi All,

I just want to update a record in a table which exist in all the databases of a particular SQL Server 2008 instance. But while trying the below script i'm getting a error like "Incorrect syntax near 'tes1'."

--script DECLARE @command varchar(1000)

SELECT @command = 'IF ''?'' NOT IN(''master'', ''model'', ''msdb'', ''tempdb'')


UPDATE dbo.mytable SET mycolumn1=''test'' WHERE mycolumn=''tes1'''

EXEC sp_MSforeachdb @command

Please let me know is that anything wrong in the above script?

You need an END statement since you have a BEGIN statement.
