    Unanswered: Updating varchar field in SQL Server 2000

    I would like to update a varchar field with an update statement that appends information to what is currently stored in the field, for example in the Statement field I may currently have a name (Mark) and I want to add a unique identifier to the end of the name so that it may look like, Markq1572, is there a way to do this in an update statement?

    You could always use this old trick:

    update table
    set Statement = Statement + 'your added text here'
    where conditions...
