SQL Apprentice Question
I have table with 10-20 rows with field P6 which is empty. I want to
update numbers to P6 starting 1 and increasing by 1. I suppose it is
done by triggers but I don't know how to do that
>> have table with 10-20 rows with field [sic] P6 which is empty [sic]. <<
You have NEVER written SQL before, have you? Columsn are not fields
and we have NULLs, not the empty spreadsheet cells you assume. TOTALLY

That is a SEQUENTAL MAGNETIC TAPE FILE and you are tryign to write
1950's code in SQL! It has northing whatsoever to do with RDBMS.
Tables have no ordering by definition. This is soooooo wrong
Geeesh!!! You can insert a set at a time, so adding one to a previous
value makes no sense. Doesn't anyone go to RDBMS classes any more?
