Changing a field's data

Changing a field's data

Changing a field's data

I'm using the Peoplesoft Query Manager.

When a meeting pattern (i.e. days, times, etc.) is entered on a class then it is assigned a pattern number (some classes could have more than 1 meeting pattern). Example:

Class    Pat_Nbr  Days, etc.

1-1      1        Mon

2-1      1        Tues
2-1      2        Thurs

If a class's meeting pattern is deleted and another one is entered then class 2-1 would look like the following:

Class    Pat_Nbr  Days, etc.

1-1      1        Mon

2-1      2        Thurs
2-1      3        Fri

Is there a way in an expression to change the Pat_Nbr so a class always has Pat_Nbr 1 and then following numbers also change so:

Class    Pat_Nbr  Days, etc.

1-1      1        Mon

2-1      1        Thurs
2-1      2        Fri

Help is appreciated. Thanks
