How to add a suffix to a column?

Hey all, I am new around here, and new to SQL/MySQL in general. 

I've have the plugin installed on Google Sheets and it has been super useful.

My issue is that I haven't been able to get the following command to work:

I want to basically, add a prefix to all of the first column (SteamID) and for it to update whenever the database updates. (I'm guessing I use the "UPDATE" syntax here,

here is what I have so far:

The command/s on line #1 work fine and I have no issue with that, but the command/s on line #2 are just not working for some reason:

Can anyone help me, all I want is for there to be the following prefix, before the numbers: (Prefix: )

(Row 3 is an example of what I want all of them to look like)

Many thanks.


You should be able to use a simple concatenation operation to get what you are looking for. So unless the ID number is stored as an odd data type, this should work:


CONCAT('', steamid) AS SteamID,




FROM playerinfo

ORDER BY TotalPlayerTime DESC

You shouldn't need anything special for the update - every time you hit "refresh" it will re-execute this and update the data to match in the sheet.

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

-Thank you
