    If you mean with one SQL statement, no, it's not possible.

    If you mean with one Stored Procdefure, yes, it is.

    If you mean with a handful of PHP/JSP/ASP statements, yes, it is.

    But the very fact you are asking this question makes me thing you may have a bad database design. For example, if you have one table for each user or something like that, you have a bad design. You might want to show us at least an outline of your DB schema.
