LeetCode: Swap Salary

LeetCode: Swap Salary

Given a table salary, such as the one below, that has m=male and f=female values. Swap all f and m values (i.e., change all f values to m and vice versa) with a single update query and no intermediate temp table.

For example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
| id | name | sex | salary |
|----|------|-----|--------|
| 1 | A | m | 2500 |
| 2 | B | f | 1500 |
| 3 | C | m | 5500 |
| 4 | D | f | 500 |

After running your query, the above salary table should have the following rows:

1
2
3
4
5
6
| id | name | sex | salary |
|----|------|-----|--------|
| 1 | A | f | 2500 |
| 2 | B | m | 1500 |
| 3 | C | f | 5500 |
| 4 | D | m | 500 |

# Write your MySQL query statement below
update salary set sex = CASE
WHEN sex = "f" THEN "m"
WHEN sex = "m" THEN "f"
END
