Inserting a substring value into an already existing entry


Recommended Posts

Currently I have a database with the following parameters and entry:


Now I want to fill the column status_from in this particular entry with the id 1 with a substring of the action column. Which is basically I want to fill my status_from column with a word that comes after from and before to of the action column. To achieve this I've tried using the following statement:

INSERT INTO crm_logs2(status_from) SELECT status_from WHERE id='1' VALUES (substring_index(substring_index(action, 'from', -1),'to', 1))

But doing this gave me the following error:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near 'VALUES (substring_index(substring_index(action, 'from', -1),

...' at line 1
