i think you forgot to end if

probably you forgot to end if . you should do something like this:

...

 BEGIN
      var := var + 1;
      IF var = 100 THEN
            var := 0;
            COMMIT;
      END IF;

...

What do you mean "doesn't work"?

Did the INSERT fail when you expected it to succeed?

Did the ALTER TABLE statement fail?

use

if (@USER=NULL OR  @USER='0')
         ALTER TABLE [TABLE] NOCHECK CONSTRAINT [FK_TABLE_USER]

or

if (@USER is NULL OR  @USER='0')
         ALTER TABLE [TABLE] NOCHECK CONSTRAINT [FK_TABLE_USER]

You can't use "= NULL", you must use IS NULL:

if (@USER IS NULL OR  @USER='0')

"You can't use "= NULL", you must use IS NULL:"

which is posted before :) actually that does not create any issue... but will not give the result author try to get...

@USER = NULL >>>> False, even if @USER is null...

Actually you said use one "or" the other.

ONLY the version with IS NULL is correct and works.

"does not work" and "does not do the right thing" is different :)

if (@user=null)
... do something here
end;

above code is correct but the code inside never works since that condition gives false...

the original code posted by author gives syntax error :) So, I fixed syntax first, then gave the correct logical code :) combo...

Not necessarily.  Colloquially then can mean the same thing.
