Batch update GL ACCOUNTS - Search and replace account descriptions

Long Description:
This next query is useful if you want to make batch updates on your list of GL Accounts.

For instance, you need to modify your account descriptions to make room for additional international accounts and make the descriptions simpler, or more intuitive. Let us say many of the descriptions of your old accounts that pertain to country specific accounts were previously encoded with the whole country name. Later on you decided to just use their abbreviations instead, for simpler naming convention.

Examples of use: You would like to replace all accounts that has the word "Canada" in it with just "CA", and all "Australia" with "AU" instead.

This technique is also very useful when correcting wrong spellings in account names.

See SQL below...

Commands with UPDATE, DELETE or DROP can ruin your data! Please use these queries with caution. We highly recommend that you backup your database before trying out these commands and to load them up first on a test server. Use at your own risk.
