*SOLVED* date update

Recommended Posts

how do i increment a record field which is a type of datetime to be it's initial value plus let's say one year.

i want to use one UPDATE query, and not SELECT and then UPDATE.

for example '2004-11-15 10:11:48' will be 2005-11-15 10:11:48.

Leave out the "WHERE" condition to update all rows in the table.
