Hi,

Is it possible to create a single query that can update 2 tables at once when executed and if it is possible, how is the syntax.

below is the query i use to update the master patient table and i would like the same query to update another table. how do i add on for the other table?

"update master_patient set forename = Substr(forename,1,1),surname=Substr(surname,1,1) where forename is not null "

Vernon,
Why can't you just make 2 JDBC calls?

Thanks Jeanne. I used 2 JDBC calls and it has worked.
