I have two tables, one called TypePropertiesByItem and the other called ProductPropertyValue. I need to scan TypePropertiesByItem and then using the Item Number field look in the ProductTypeValue table and see if it already exists. If it does, update the PropertyValue field, if it does not exist, insert the entire record.

How do I combine these two sql statements to accomplish this? (the ProductType1 value of 577 is used to restrict the ProductType and is fixed)

select itemnmbr,article
from  TypePropertiesByItem  it
where ProdType1=577

if not exists(select top 1 from ProductPropertyValue where ProductID = it.ItemNmbr and PropertyID=577)
      insert into ProductPropertyValue (ProductID,PropertyID,PropertyValue)
      update ProductPropertyValue
      set PropertyValue = it.Article
      where ProductID = it.ItemNmbr and PropertyID=577
