Hey guys,
I am an OpenNMS admin and new to Postgres.  I have just updated around 1100 devices manually with multiple categories and left out a category from each...  What I would like to do is run a sql statement that will select any node with a category ID of X and add to that node a category ID of Y....
pgsql 8.1.5
table looks like this:
public.category_node (trimmed to one nodeid)
categoryid nodeid
27            865
26            865
I want to search all rows for categoryid of 27, then insert a row with categoryid of 30 to that same nodeid.  so it would look like this.
categoryid nodeid
27            865
26            865
30            865
I think I have this much:
SELECT "categoryid" FROM "public"."category_node" WHERE "categoryid" = '27'
Is this the right track?  and then, how do I insert a row?
