hi guys,

I have the following statement:

This creates a new table putting together pieces of 2 tables where 2 conditions exist.

Now I that the table exists... the second time I run this I just want to update the values.
Can someone please help me change this query from a create new table... to update the existing table.

Appreciate it
thanks


SELECT 
	dbo.PositionsDB.Account_ID, dbo.PositionsDB.Position_ID, dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Number, 
	dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Description,	dbo.PositionsDB.COB_Date, dbo.PositionsDB.Qty_Net, 
	dbo.PositionsDB.Exchange, dbo.PositionsDB.Product, dbo.PositionsDB.Contract_Date, 
	dbo.PositionsDB.Option_Type, dbo.PositionsDB.Strike,
	dbo.PositionsDB.Settlement_Price
INTO dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF
FROM dbo.PositionsDB
INNER JOIN dbo.AccountsDB
ON dbo.PositionsDB.Account_ID = dbo.AccountsDB.Account_ID
WHERE dbo.AccountsDB.Client_ID = '418bb7b8-0180-4a5a-99f6-ce52e60e694f'
AND [COB_Date] = '20121219'

i'm losing my mind here.

I'm not sure if I found source or not.

Lets assume that the table columns are there but there is not data in dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.

I am trying to populate these columns
      dbo.PositionsDB.Account_ID, dbo.PositionsDB.Position_ID,      dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Number,
      dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Description,      dbo.PositionsDB.COB_Date, dbo.PositionsDB.Qty_Net,
      dbo.PositionsDB.Exchange, dbo.PositionsDB.Product, dbo.PositionsDB.Contract_Date,
      dbo.PositionsDB.Option_Type, dbo.PositionsDB.Strike,
      dbo.PositionsDB.Settlement_Price


.  So using your examples I just have to UPdate the columns.  This is the part I'm stuck on .
to make things a bit more confusing... and maybe the source of the problem
Account_ID is a unique identifier from AccountsDB
and Position_ID is a unique identifier from PositionsDB

is this why your update statement is not working... am I supposed to be updating all of them a tthe same time instead of each column?

so the reason I couldnt get any results is because my code was incorrect.

I should have been using INSERT INTO since I started with a blank table. .. duhhh, my fault
That combined with your help has this issue solved.

Thanks!!!
