RE: SQL error



fixed

Use Coalesce to supply a "default value" instead of null...

update bzcontract a set XDPCV =
(select coalesce(sum(CMPAMT),0) from pricecmp b, ctltable
where a.ACNTNMB = b.ACNTNMB
and CTLTABLE = 'PRICE COMP' and cmptype = CTLELEMENT
and CTLFLAG1 = 'Y'
group by ACNTNMB)

hth,

Subject: SQL error

How can I get around error (without changing file to allow nulls)?



update bzcontract a set XDPCV =
(select sum(CMPAMT) from pricecmp b, ctltable
where a.ACNTNMB = b.ACNTNMB
and CTLTABLE = 'PRICE COMP' and cmptype = CTLELEMENT
and CTLFLAG1 = 'Y'
group by ACNTNMB)

error:

Null values not allowed in column or variable XDPCV.
