Replace data using LEFT$() in mySQL DB
I need to find the letters "ABC" in the 'name' field of my 'products' table and change the 'price' to a new price for all records that match the "ABC" criteria.
i.e. IF LEFT$(name,"ABC") then set price = '1.99';
Can someone show me how to do this, please.

UPDATE my_table SET my_value = 1.99 WHERE my_string LIKE 'ABC%';
