For example, we discover that we need to keep a record of the last date that each author published and what they published.

If you omit the WHERE clause, all records in the table will be updated!

The WHERE clause specifies which record(s) that should be updated.

In this scenario, accounting only sent me two records, but in the real life situation I ran into, it was over 10,000 records.

Also, this scenario’s master table has only 5 records; my real master table has close to 1,000,000 records.
