Is there an easy way to swap content of two fields (sn and ssn) in a table with hundreds of rows?
I insert the content of those field by mistake. all sn values are stored under ssn and all ssn values are stored under sn.

It is, isn't it?
It works because your database will first resolve the value of sn and snn , before writing the new values.
just the same as update a_table set x = x + 1 increments column x. It reads the value of column x, increments it with 1, then writes that value to column x.
