I want to have a script in the procedure to quickly get the version number from the Version table below by inputing the value number, and execute corresponding module:

If version is "1.1" THEN run module 1
If Version is "1.2" THEN run module 2

Table Version:
Value  Version
1      1.1
2      2.0

Thanks a lot.

Hi.

First, if you have not created a procedure before, here is the reference:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/create-procedure.html

Then you can get version into a variable like so:

DECLARE version_variable VARCHAR(10);
SELECT `Version` 
INTO version_variable
FROM `Version`
WHERE `Value` = value_variable;

Open in new window


Using that variable, the structure of IF statement could look like this:
IF (condition 1) THEN
   -- do one thing
ELSEIF (condition 2)
   -- do something else
ELSE
   -- do something as default
END IF;

Open in new window


Let's see if you can put together what you need from that. You can post back if you have any difficulties, but this way you should get a better understanding.

Hope that helps.
