If you have an identity column then override system value on update, and override user value on insert.



EXEC SQL

UPDATE TABLE1

Overriding System Value

SET ROW = :TableDS

WHERE key = :TableDS.key;





EXEC SQL

INSERT INTO TABLE1

Overriding User Value

Values ( :TableDS );

Subject: Update a table from EXTNAME-defined data structure using search argument

Good morning folks,



I am updating a file. I have an externally defined data structure

defined with EXTNAME().



I can't find a specific reference anywhere, but is there a syntax to use

that data structure to update the row in the table, like so, maybe?



UPDATE TABLE1 SET TABLERECD = :TABLE-DS WHERE KEY1 = VALUE1 AND KEY2 =

VALUE2?



I have just seven fields to list out, and I'm doing that, but I just

wondered if there was a way to do the above (without having to input

with an update lock)?



Reason I'm asking is for the future, if I could set it up that way, it

would make it easier to add changes to other columns, and maybe other thins.
