Um, sure it does, both! There is nothing in SQL that should require me to have a unique key. If the update identifies a single record update a single record if the update identifies 100 records update 100 records. This is a set-oriented language, no? I'm not aware of a single other database that requires unique rows. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: Jim Langston [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, December 27, 2001 13:00 To: 'email@example.com' Subject: RE: [WEB400] Client Access ODBC Driver error Because if there are 2 records with itemno equal to 12345 which one do you want it to update? You may know you want it to update the first one, or the second one, or both of them, but the ODBC doesn't know. Regards, Jim Langston -----Original Message----- From: Walden H. Leverich [mailto:WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com] <SNIP> Update item set price = 1.3 where itemno = 12345 Itemno may be unique, but then again maybe not, why does IBM's ODBC driver care? -Walden _______________________________________________ This is the Web Enabling the AS400 / iSeries (WEB400) mailing list To post a message email: WEB400@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/web400 or email: WEB400firstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/web400.
