I have an images table containing
filename. The filenames are randomly generated by php on upload for security.
I have a
catalogue table containing
image field contains the
id of the image associated with that product.
I want the user to enter the title of the image and have MySQL replace that with the relevant image id.
Now here's the kicker: I want to do it using a CASE clause.
This is what I've got so far:
INNER JOIN `images` ON `images`.`id` = `catalogue`.`image`
SET `product_name` = (CASE `catalogue`.`id` WHEN 123 THEN 'abc' WHEN 124 THEN 'abd' ELSE `catalogue`.`id`),
`description` = (CASE `catalogue`.`id` WHEN 123 THEN 'Some useless crap' WHEN 124 'More stuff you don\\'t need' ELSE `description` END)
`image` = (CASE `images`.`title` WHEN 'image1' THEN `images`.`id` WHEN 'image2' THEN `images`.`id`);
Obviously it doesn't work... Before I lose any more of my life on this, I'm just wondering if a) its possible, and b) whether I'm on the right lines.
As always, thanks in advance.
