Snowflake Update

Generally, we will update the rows that match a particular condition. We will update the rows by declaring the “WHERE” clause.

      end_date  = ‘2022-07-25 12:30:20.321’
where id = 2;

For updating all the rows in the Snowflake table, just use the “UPDATE” statement without the “WHERE” clause:

update sessions1
set end_date = ‘2022-08-09 15:45:57.753’

To update multiple rows at a time, use the below code:
