I have the following select statement.  

SELECT partnum, max(tranDate) lastTranDate, min(tranDate) DATEADD,count(*) FROM parttran WHERE trantype in ('DMR-MTL', 'INS-MTL', 'PLT-MTL', 'PUR-MTL','STK-MTL','MFG-CUS','MFG-PLT','MFG-STK','PLT-ASM','PUR-INS','PUR-STK','PUR-UKN','STK-ASM') group by partnum having max(tranDate) < dateadd(year, -2, getdate())

Based on the "PartNum" that are presented, I need to do an update statement like so

Update Part Set CheckBox01 = '1'

So my quesiton, how can I update a table from the result of this select statement.

You could probably do it with a CTE like this.

Greg


;WITH AggregatedData
AS
(
SELECT partnum, max(tranDate) lastTranDate, min(tranDate) DATEADD,count(*) 
FROM parttran 
WHERE trantype in ('DMR-MTL', 'INS-MTL', 'PLT-MTL', 'PUR-MTL','STK-MTL','MFG-CUS','MFG-PLT','MFG-STK','PLT-ASM','PUR-INS','PUR-STK','PUR-UKN','STK-ASM') 
GROUP BY partnum HAVING MAX(tranDate) < dateadd(year, -2, getdate())
)
UPDATE Part SET CheckBox01 = '1'
WHERE partnum IN(SELECT partnum FROM AggregatedData)

Open in new window

One method is to use an UPDATE with JOIN.
UPDATE p 
SET p.CheckBox01 = '1'
FROM Part p
JOIN (
   SELECT partnum
   FROM parttran
   WHERE trantype IN (
      'DMR-MTL', 'INS-MTL', 'PLT-MTL', 'PUR-MTL', 
      'STK-MTL', 'MFG-CUS', 'MFG-PLT', 'MFG-STK', 
      'PLT-ASM', 'PUR-INS', 'PUR-STK', 'PUR-UKN', 
      'STK-ASM'
   ) 
   GROUP BY partnum 
   HAVING MAX(tranDate) < DATEADD(year, -2, GETDATE())
) t ON t.partnum = p.partnum
;

Open in new window


You can probably simplify this using an IN or EXISTS clause. I would probably go with the latter. But try the above as it is probably easiest to transition to from the code you already have.

Sorry, Greg. I was typing and did not see your comment. That is a good example of the IN syntax. Using CTE helps to transition from existing code easily also.

maybe this:

Update Part Set CheckBox01 = '1'
where some_column in (your select statement, but just the required id in select part...)

No problem, Kevin.  Actually, it doesn't say what version of SQL it is.  Mine will only work on 2005 and higher.  Yours will work on SQL 2000 as well.
