inserting data into sql server db table

Hi Experts

I have a C#.net 2010 app and a part of my code has to let users enter data into textboxes(x6) and once inserted into DB table(which i do) but i now need to compare if that data entered and inserted into db table matches another table with the exact data.

Thanks

Return value from store procedue if 1 means inserted else no match

CREATE PROCEDURE GetImmediateManager
   @PN INT,
   @JOB INT,
   @BATCH INT,
   @RESULT INT OUTPUT
AS
BEGIN
If Exists ( select * from tableB where PN=@PN and JOB=@JOB and BATCH = @BATCH)
begin
 -- Insert data in table
set @RESULT = 1
end
else
begin
set @RESULT = 0
end
END

So you want to check if the Row in Table1 (inserted from GUI) has a match in a second table

then you can something like this

Select count(*)
from Table1
inner join Table2
On Table1.Field1=Table2.Field1
And Table1.Field2=Table2.Field2
And Table1.Field3=Table2.Field3
And Table1.Field4=Table2.Field4
And Table1.Field5=Table2.Field5
And Table1.Field6=Table2.Field6

This way you will always get 1 Value.

The condition is now very simplistic using =
But you can keep in mind that you can use here much more options ;-)

did you mean that you want to inser data only if it matches with another tables ??

In this case you need call strore procedure to insert data
and in Store procedure
check
If Exists ( select * from table2 where id=@id)
begin
 -- Insert data in table
end

Thanks for the replies guys, yeah i only want to insert the data into table B if it matches table A and if any of the data dont match(only 3 fields in fact - PN, JOB,BATCH) then dont insert and warn user that it doesnt match, but sometimes BATCH can be empty when inserting meaning that it will also be empty in table A.

Hope this makes sense.

this is how my sp will be...

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[w4sp_compareCVSDataInputSAPMatch]
   @SERIALNUMBER NVARCHAR(18),
   @MONUMBER NVARCHAR(12),
   @BATCHNUMBER NVARCHAR(20),
   @QTY INT,
   @VENDORDATE NVARCHAR(20),
   @VENDORLOT NVARCHAR(20),
   @SAPDOC NVARCHAR(25),
   @RESULT INT OUTPUT
AS
SET NOCOUNT ON
BEGIN
      If Exists
            (select * from wp4tbl_TblCompVerifySapBatch where MATERIALNUMBER=@SERIALNUMBER
                  and WORKORDER=@MONUMBER and BATCHNUMBER = @BATCHNUMBER and QTY=@QTY)
      begin
       -- Insert data in table
            insert into wp4tbl_Tblcvskitverify (MONUMBER, VENDORDATE, VENDORLOT, QTY, SAPDOC, BATCHNUMBER, SERIALNUMBER)
            values(@MONUMBER,@VENDORDATE,@VENDORLOT,@QTY,@SAPDOC,@BATCHNUMBER,@SERIALNUMBER)
            set @RESULT = 1
      end
      else
      begin
      -- HOW TO WARN USER AT GUI LEVEL THAT DATA DOESNT MATCH ??
            set @RESULT = 0
      end
      END

SET NOCOUNT OFF

see the example , I have given only for output parameter add your input parameter then after excutenonquery you get reult in intres

Dim sqlCmd As New SqlCommand
        sqlCmd.Connection = Connection
        sqlCmd.CommandText = "SPNAME"
        sqlCmd .CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
      'Add all your paramenets and then output parameter
          Dim resParameter = New SqlParameter("@RESULT ", SqlDbType.int)
        resParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
     
        sqlCmd.Parameters.Add(resParameter)
       
        sqlCmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
    'then
Din intres as integer

intres = resParameter.Value

ok so this will be good use...

SqlCommand cmd2 = new SqlCommand("w4sp_compareCVSDataInputSAPMatch", cnn);
                                    cmd2.Connection = cnn;
                                    cmd2.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                                    SqlParameter resParameter = new SqlParameter("@RESULT ", SqlDbType.Int);
                                    resParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
                                   
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@MONUMBER", txtJob.Text);txtJob
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@MATERIAL", txtPartNumber.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@QTY", txtQty.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SERIALNUMBER", txtSerialNumber.Text.ToString());
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VENDORDATE", txtVendorDate.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@VENDORLOT", txtVendorLot.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@BATCHNUMBER", txtBatch.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SAPDOC", txtSAPDoc.Text);
                                    cmd2.Parameters.Add(resParameter);
                                    cmd2.ExecuteNonQuery();

                                    int result;
                                    result = (int)resParameter.Value;
                                   

                                    if (result == 1)
                                    {

                                        fs_userfeedback.InnerHtml = "<h2> MATCHED! JOB# Record Successfully Scanned Into Database.. </h2>" + "\r\n"
                                                            + "\r\n" + "<h3> Please Scan Vendor Date.</h3>";
                                        fs_userfeedback.Style.Add("color", "blue");

                                       
                                    }
                                    else if(result == 0)
                                    {
                                        fs_userfeedback.InnerHtml = "<h2> Batch (&/OR) Part numbers do not Match! </h2>" + "\r\n"
                                                        + "\r\n" + "<h3> Please Check & Try Again.</h3>";
                                        fs_userfeedback.Style.Add("color", "red");
                                    }
