    I assume you do have already a date/time creation date  for those rows ?  You could then use this information on the fly to know which rows are expired and you woan't have anything to update. For more flexibility you could have a separate expiration date/time column allowing to make some rows lasting a bit longer if needed.

    Else you would have to run an update either when requesting data or by using a SQL job which is less convenient. So in short if a status is based on a delay think about using a date/time telling when this row enteed or will enter into this state rather than just a column giving the current state.

    Seem like you don't need status column in the table, you need to write query only.

    SELECT CASE WHEN DateAdd(day,1, entereddate) < getdate()then 0 ELSE 1 END as Status

    Or add calculated column using similar formula

    Do you mean to do some change on table, per every 24 hours? If yes, you can also create scheduled job for this.

    Yes after 24 hours if status is not changed from Process to Confirm then the status should become again stock.

    It should be from database level (May be trigger or)

    Hi sth_syed,

    you can try to use query like below.

    update [Table_Name] set [Status] = 'Stock' WHERE Date_column < DATEADD(hh,-24,GETDATE()) and [Status]='Process';

    then you can create a Job and schedule it to execute above query after certain time interval.

    You can update the data in display data page.

    Before showing the data, update the status first.
