Uppercase SQL

Uppercase SQL

(OP)
I am new to SQL and not sure if i am going in the right direction to perform what i want to do. What i want to do is covert a column name "DESC_RT_LINE" to uppercase in a table named "ROUTER_LINE"

UPDATE ROUTER_LINE SET ROUTER_LINE.DESC_RT_LINE = (SELECT UCASE (DESC_RT_LINE) FROM ROUTER_LINE)

Right now this is where i am at and it gives an error of
"ODBC Error: SQLSTATE = S1000, Native error code = 0
'Invalid row-count in subquery."

Any Help Please!

RE: Uppercase SQL

An easier way of doing it is:
UPDATE ROUTER_LINE SET ROUTER_LINE.DESC_RT_LINE = UPPER(DESC_RT_LINE)

RE: Uppercase SQL

Just so you know your sub-select was returning more than one row hence the error.
