Default Copying title to meta

can anyone write me a SQL code that copies my product name into the title tag, meta keywords and meta description boxes so i dont have to go through 2000 product pages? I cant seem to find the tables they are stored in.

Default Re: Copying title to meta

Off the top of my head (untested), how about something like this:

UPDATE: This did not work
Code:
UPDATE xcart_products p SET (title_tag, meta_keywords, meta_description) = ( SELECT product, product, product FROM xcart_products_lng_en pl WHERE pl.productid = p.productid );

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '(title_tag, meta_keywords, meta_description) = (
SELECT product, product, pro' at line 2

Maybe something like this instead (untested):

UPDATE: This did not work (probably would for MSSQL)
Code:
UPDATE xcart_products p SET title_tag = pl.product, meta_keywords = pl.product, meta_description = pl.product FROM xcart_products_lng_en pl WHERE pl.productid = p.productid );

In 4.6.x product name is NOT in products table so this will not work. Same for product's meta tags

They are all in product XX table - XX being language

The query won't work the way it is.

This

UPDATE xcart_products, xcart_products_lng_en SET xcart_products.title_tag = xcart_products_lng_en.product, xcart_products.meta_keywords = xcart_products_lng_en.product, xcart_products.meta_description = xcart_products_lng_en.product WHERE xcart_products.productid = xcart_products_lng_en.productid;

But make sure you backup first

Thanks for clarifying. However, the query did not fail because of the location of the product name. Your implicit JOIN is interesting but not clear. I prefer this:
Code:
UPDATE xcart_products p JOIN xcart_products_lng_en pl ON pl.productid = p.productid SET title_tag = pl.product, meta_keywords = pl.product, meta_description = pl.product
