Pseudo code:

open table "Master" for editing

If size = "24 x 12" then size_id = 153

How would I structure an SQL command to do this? Currently my MASTER table contains only a few thousand records, but it is still time consuming to manually each record with the updated info.

Should be like:

Update "YOUR_TABLE_NAME" set "size_id" = 153 Where "size" = '24 x 12'

Always make a backup copy before running when dealing with possible large updates of this type.
