Re: SQL error



fixed

The problem is that you've got values in bzcontract that don't have a
match in pricecmp, ctltable.

Coalesce is one solution....

The other is not to update records in bzcontract that don't have a match..

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)
where exists (select * from pricecmp b, ctltable
where a.ACNTNMB = b.ACNTNMB
and CTLTABLE = 'PRICE COMP' and cmptype = CTLELEMENT
and CTLFLAG1 = 'Y'
)

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

error:

Null values not allowed in column or variable XDPCV.
