ALTER TABLE #Tmp_LN_Discount ADD
            CONSTRAINT PK_Tmp_LN_Discount PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED
            (      STR_ID,
                  RGST_ID,
                  TRAN_ID,
                  TRAN_LN_NUM,
                  DISC_CD            )  ON [PRIMARY]

Check if table exist before creating a constraint.

There is already an object named 'PK_Tmp_LN_Discount' in the database.

if exists (select * from dbo.sysobjects where id = object_id(N'[dbo].[#Tmp_LN_Discount]') and OBJECTPROPERTY(id, N'IsUserTable') = 1)
ALTER TABLE #Tmp_LN_Discount ADD
            CONSTRAINT PK_Tmp_LN_Discount PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED
            (      STR_ID,
                  RGST_ID,

You might not want to drop the table first. It may contain data.

This is more correct. My cut and past went crazy:


if exists (select * from dbo.sysobjects where id = object_id(N'[dbo].[#Tmp_LN_Discount]')
ALTER TABLE #Tmp_LN_Discount ADD
            CONSTRAINT PK_Tmp_LN_Discount PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED
            (      STR_ID,
                  RGST_ID,
                  TRAN_ID,
                  TRAN_LN_NUM,
                  DISC_CD            )  ON [PRIMARY]
GO

what about CREATE TABLE #Tmp_LN_Discount (STR_ID INT NOT NULL, RGST_ID INT NOT NULL, TRAN_ID INT NOT NULL, TRAN_LN_NUM SMALLINT NOT NULL, DISC_CD INT NOT NULL, DISC_AMT MONEY NULL)
      
There is already an object named '#Tmp_LN_Discount' in the database.

I was looking only at the contraint portion of the command. You can do the same type of query:

if exists (select name from sysobjects where name like '#tmp_ln_discount%')
begin
     drop table #tmp+ln_discount
end
