    How to I update a row base on the lowest value of a particular column?
    Example:

    |A|B|
    |2| |
    |1|X| <-- update X
    |3| |

    What is the command to use?
    I can do "select min(A) from table;" but not "update table set B=1 where min(A);".
    Anyone expert in SQL language, please help!

    I'm not sure if this will work, I don't have access to mysql at the moment but give it a shot.

    update table set B=1 where A=min(A);
