Off the top of my head, you can probably concatenate the columns into a separate column in the spreadsheet to be something like

update <tablename> set A=$A1, B=$B1...... where Z=$Z1



using excel formulas and then copy the whole column onto your SQL Editor and run it once.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
