Insert stored procedure

I have two tables.
First table has the ff. structure

tID   tcode >>First table

Second table has

tID Name address>>Second table

What Id like to do is write an INSERT statement that would insert the value 38 in the tcode field of the First table under the following condition.

1. first if the 2 tables link based on the tID field.
2. If link exits,  check in the first table if there is a value of 38 in the tCode. If not exist, INSERT 28 in the tCode otherwise,ingnore.

Essentliall the first table can have many codes under 1 tID like eg.

tID     tcode
222    20
222    21
222    38
222   29


Thanks

I included vb.net because, it may need a code to loop to each record in the table of the database.

If I've understood your question correctly I believe the below should do what you want:

INSERT INTO First_Table
SELECT Second_Table.tid, 38
FROM Second_Table
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT T1.Tid FROM First_Table as T1 WHERE T1.Tid=Second_Table.Tid AND T1.TCode=38);
GO

I forgot to mention that there is datefield  value in 2nd table that I need to insert to 1st table tdatefield at the same time.
Hi,

you should just be able to add the date field to the SELECT statement. I did miss the field list in the insert line and also, if the TID can occur more than once in Second_Table you may want a DISTINCT.

INSERT INTO First_Table (Tid, TCode, DateField)
SELECT DISTINCT Second_Table.tid, 38, Second_Table.DateField
FROM Second_Table
WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT T1.Tid FROM First_Table as T1 WHERE T1.Tid=Second_Table.Tid AND T1.TCode=38);
GO

If there are multiple entries for a TID in the second table, you can add conditions to select which record's date field is used or use a calculation such as MAX(DateField).

Kind Regards

Question on insert procedure

Actually, the table structure for First table  are:
Comp
Emp
TID
TCode
DateField
NCode
DCode
CCode

Second_table structure

TID
TCode
DateCode

Im actually inserting 3  values from Second_table
So for the rest of the columns in First_table that are not in Second_table
Id like to insert the hard code  Values
Comp = 1
Emp = 30
NCode = 'LK'
DCode = 7
CCode = 78

How would I write the sql statement for the INSERT?
