LC Server - MySQL - update about 2000 rows/records of a table

Hi Matthias,

Are there going to be users on your system at the time of the update?
Are you locking the record or records before your update, and then
unlocking them?

You should do a test with the repeat loop to see how long the process takes.
If it is depriving your users of the database for too long you may want to
think of a way which will impact their use the least.  Perhaps picking a
time of day when your system is getting the least amount of traffic
would be best.

Hope this helps.
