I am looking for a way to insert data into a table but if there is already a record there with the same employeeid or userid, I want it to be an update.  How would I do this in a stored procedure?  Thank you for your help ahead of time.

INSERT INTO urTable  (EmployeeID)
SELECT @EmployeeID
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM urTable WHERE EmployeeID = @EmployeeID )
IF @@ROWCOUNT = 0

here you have a comparison of the 2 possible methods:

I usually go with the  UPDATE + INSERT, and not with the EXISTS method...

Here is my insert statement.  How would I change this to a conditional insert statement, or update if there is a record?  See the code below:  Thanks!
