Hi guys
I just need a querry to move all the users from one group into another group. Hell, I don't even think I spelled querry right.:o The mass move in the admin section would not work because it doesn't show what groups the other users are in.

If we assume that you want to move users from the group with ID 4 to the group with ID 5 (you can see the ID's of each group by looking at the w3t_Groups table) then all you need is to issue this statement:

UPDATE w3t_Users SET U_Groups = REPLACE(U_Groups, '-4-', '-5-');

and just to be on the safe side you need to enter this one as well:
UPDATE w3t_Users SET U_Groups = REPLACE(U_Groups, '-5-5-', '-5-');

The second one will make sure that the new group is not referenced twice.

It is better to use those queries for one record alone i.e. add a WHERE U_Number = 'xx' first (where xx is the U_Number of a record you know fits the criteria) and then run them against your database.

Just to be safe, backup your db first.
