    I have a table, where i need to insert values only for one particular
    column and the other columns will be manually or will be populated
    through other queries. I'm kind of having difficulty with this. I tried

    "Insert into " with select statements and also Select Into, both does
    not solve this, because they append a new row insted of inserting
    values into
    a specific row. Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
