I need a SQL Query that is used to change a single character of a column value in a db2 table.
Eg., I have a name "JAYANTHI". I need a SQL query to change the first char "J" alone to "Z". How can I achieve this ?. This is an interview question.

You can not update part of a column so you would have to use a literal, substring and concatenation to accomplish that.
