Basic math in MS SQL stored procedure across three tables

I'm trying to do some very basic math in MS SQL by using one stored procedure to SUM the value of a column in Table_A, then divide the SUM from Table_A by the page view total from Table_B - and UPDATE the value in Table_C.

Basically I'm trying to work out the eCPC for a lead generating site on a page view basis (so every time a user visits a profile the eCPC is updated against the SUM of leads generated).

val = common denominator across all three tables

So step 1 is:
SELECT SUM(lead_value) as lead_sum FROM Table_A WHERE camp_id='val'

Step 2:
SELECT page_views FROM Table_B WHERE camp_id='val'

Step 3:
new_eCPC = lead_sum / page_views

Step 4:
UPDATE Table_C SET lead_eCPC='new_eCPC' WHERE camp_id='val'

Now I can easilly do this in ASP, but I have to execute an SQL script three times to do this - which I believe is terribily inefficient as I want it to happen each time a profile is viewed.

Can someone please help we write a stored procedure for this so I only have to execute it once on each profile view?

Many Thanks!

Something like this perhaps:
U PDATE  c

SET     lead_eCPC = a.lead_sum / b.page_views

FROM    Table_C c

        INNER JOIN (SELECT  SUM(lead_value) lead_sum

                    FROM    Table_A

                    WHERE   camp_id = 'val'

                   ) a ON c.camp_id = a.camp_id

        INNER JOIN Table_B b ON c.camp_id = b.camp_id

try
Create procedure yourProc (@camp_id varchar(20))

As 

Begin

	declare @new_eCPC int	

	declare @lead_sum int

	SELECT @lead_sum = SUM(lead_value) as lead_sum FROM Table_A WHERE camp_id= @camp_id

	SELECT @new_eCPC = @lead_sum / page_views  FROM Table_B WHERE camp_id=@camp_id

	UPDATE Table_C SET lead_eCPC= @new_eCPC WHERE camp_id=@camp_id

end

Create procedure Proc_name (@camp_id varchar(50))
As
declare @sum_A int      
declare @div
Begin      
      SELECT @sum_a = SUM(lead_value) as lead_sum FROM Table_A WHERE camp_id= @camp_id
      SELECT @div = @sum_A /SUM(page_views)  FROM Table_B WHERE camp_id=@camp_id
      UPDATE Table_C SET lead_eCPC= @div WHERE camp_id=@camp_id
end

Well i cannot see what datatypes your fields have, but should be someting like the following.

You can execute it like this: EXEC UpdateECPC 'campid'

CREATE PROCEDURE UpdateECPC @camp_id varchar(20)
AS
BEGIN
	SET NOCOUNT ON
	DECLARE @lead_sum int
	DECLARE @page_views int
	SET @lead_sum = (SELECT SUM(lead_value) FROM Table_A WHERE camp_id = @camp_id)
	SET @page_views = (SELECT page_views FROM Table_B WHERE camp_id = @camp_id)
	UPDATE Table_C SET lead_eCPC = @lead_sum / @page_views WHERE camp_id = @camp_id
	SET NOCOUNT OFF
END

That is brilliant! Thanks very much guys - I don't use stored procedures very often so wasn't aware you could declare variables that easilly and execute multiple lines.

Strange choice.  Multiple SELECT statements over a single UPDATE statement?  Obviously performance is not important to you.
