If IGNORE is provided, all errors encountered during the update are ignored.
If an update on a row would result in a violation of a primary key or unique index, the update on that row is not performed.
If you want to return the value before you updated it without using a seperate select (which unless you lock the table could return a different value than is updated) then you can use a mysql variable like this:update some_table set col = col 1 where key = 'some_key_value' and @value := col The @value := col will always evaluate to true and will store the col value before the update in the @value variable. Additional information on My SQL correlated subqueries is at UPDATE can apparently be used to implement a semaphore (pardon my pseudocode):while TRUE The code above waits until the semaphore is "cleared" (value = 0) and then "sets" it (value = 1).
Syntax "UPDATE table_name SET column_name1=' value', column_name2=' value' WHERE column_name=' value' "; Overview In this tutorial create 3 files 1.

(This is because the order in which the rows are updated determines which rows are ignored.) Such statements produce a warning in the error log when using statement-based mode and are written to the binary log using the row-based format when using mode.
