In this article, we would like to show you UPDATE query with FETCH in MS SQL Server.

Practical example

To show you UPDATE query with FETCH, we will use the following users table:

MS SQL Server - example data used to present UPDATE query with LIMIT
MS SQL Server - example data used to present UPDATE query with FETCH

Note:

At the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

Example

In this example, we will update department_id column value for users from id value 3 (excluding user with id = 3). We will also limit the update to 4 users.

Query:

UPDATE [users] SET [department_id]= 10
WHERE [id] IN (
    SELECT [id] FROM (
        SELECT [id] FROM [users] 
        ORDER BY [id] 
		OFFSET 3 ROWS
		FETCH NEXT 4 ROWS ONLY
    ) subquery
);

Result:

MS SQL Server - UPDATE query with LIMIT - result
Results - HeidiSQL

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE [users] (
	[id] INT IDENTITY(1,1),
	[name] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	[surname] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
	[department_id] INT,
    [salary] DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
	PRIMARY KEY ([id])
);

insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO [users]
	( [name], [surname], [department_id], [salary])
VALUES
	('John', 'Stewart', 1, '3512.00'),
	('Chris', 'Brown', 2, '1344.00'),
	('Kate', 'Lewis', 3, '6574.00'),
	('Ailisa', 'Gomez', 1, '6500.00'),
	('Gwendolyn', 'James', 2, '4200.00'),
	('Simon', 'Collins', 4, '3320.00'),
	('Taylor', 'Martin', 2, '1500.00'),
	('Andrew', 'Thompson', 1, '2100.00');
