updating field when `field1`+`field2` = 'string'
How do I update a counter field if field1 + a space + field2 equals $string.
UPDATE `counters` SET `counter1` = `counter1` + 1 WHERE `field1`.' '.`field2`` = '$string' LIMIT 1

I think I'd split the string into the field names and use
Please notice I removed the ticks from "counter1" and used double quotes. Tick are for column names.UPDATE `counters` SET `counter1` = "counter1" + 1 WHERE `field1` = "first part of string" AND `field2`` = "Next part of string" LIMIT 1

i think concat would work
Code:UPDATE `counters` SET `counter1` = `counter1` + 1 WHERE CONCAT ( field1, field2 ) = '$string' LIMIT 1
