[vox-tech] mysql question: changing a record

hi all,

i have a mysql database called slash.
in slash, there's a table named vars.
in vars, there's a field named ispell:

   mysql> select name, value from vars
       -> WHERE name = 'ispell';
   | name   | value  |
   | ispell | ispell |

how do i change this value?  after some reading, i thought the answer
would be:

   mysql> UPDATE vars
       -> SET ispell = 'foobar';

but that generates an error:

   ERROR 1054: Unknown column 'ispell' in 'field list'

i don't understand the error message.  how is ispell an unknown field?
