this my structure
the tblArticle Now Contain 30000 record I want Now replace The Auther_Name with Auther_ID.
can any one help me?
you can update your tblArticle using the script
SET A.Auther_Name = B.Autherr_ID
FROM tblAuther B
JOIN tblArticle A
ON A.Auther_Name = B.Auther_Name
after that you can change the data type (if necessary) and change column name of Auther_name in tblArticle.
* Note if there are two auther with the same name (and sure different ID) you need to review those authors for all other the update will do what you want.
I hope this is helpful.
