I got it working , thank you.
I only could do what I wanted to do in multisteps however. I couldn't
figure out the nested querying , and it's bugging me.
Here's how I issued it.
mysql> update tableDummy set newDate=(select
And although I got an error, it did give all zero values for the
no big deal now that I have what I want, but if someone can pick out
my error, would be greatly apreciated.
