Update multiple ranges of info

Update multiple ranges of info

Update multiple ranges of info

(OP)
Hello, I am trying to update a pay field on multiple employees based on their job class. The job classes are spread out all over the place so I have a need to use both the 'in' command and 'between' or 'to' command. This is what I have:

update pay
set pay_amount = 732
where job in ('0101' to '0116', '0118' to '0120' .....)

I am getting a syntax error, which I understand, but I am not sure how to combine both the 'in' and 'to' commands together.

Maybe there is no way, but just checking.

RE: Update multiple ranges of info

Maybe in this way

update pay
set pay_amount = 732
where job between ('0101' and '0116') or job between( '0118' and '0120') .....

RE: Update multiple ranges of info

My mistake of course
update pay
set pay_amount = 732
where (job between '0101' and '0116') or (job between '0118' and '0120') .....
