update myTable set status = 'completed' where id IN (10,20,30,40,50) LIMIT
I believe that should work.
As a precaution, I recommend always using "LIMIT x" whenever possible on
SELECT, UPDATE or DELETE statements. This will minimize any accidental
dammage to other records should you have mistyped a query. Plus it will
speed up your SELECTS if you only need to pull 1 record say.
