I have this compound SQL statement that I execute using ExecuteScaler.

UPDATE IHPS_case_note SET safety_plan_revision_request = 'xxxxxxxx' FROM IHPS_case_note INNER JOIN ihps_case ON ihps_case.ID = ihps_case_note.fk_caseID INNER JOIN ihps_create_log ON ihps_create_log.ID = ihps_case.FK_createlogID WHERE DHS_evaluationID = '341287' AND ihps_create_log.incremental = 1;

SELECT IHPS_case_note.ID from IHPS_case_note INNER JOIN ihps_case ON ihps_case.ID = ihps_case_note.fk_caseID INNER JOIN ihps_create_log ON ihps_create_log.ID = ihps_case.FK_createlogID WHERE DHS_evaluationID = '341287' AND ihps_create_log.incremental = 1

This works fine, as it returns the Primary Key of the record that I just updated.  Is there a better way to do this, without duplicating the whole UPDATE SQL statement?

Try this, I know it works in T-SQL in a query window, I believe it will work from being called from .Net as well.  The OUTPUT clause will return values from the INSERTED Psudo table just like you use in triggers.
UPDATE IHPS_case_note SET safety_plan_revision_request = 'xxxxxxxx' 
OUTPUT INSERTED.ID
FROM IHPS_case_note INNER JOIN ihps_case ON ihps_case.ID = ihps_case_note.fk_caseID INNER JOIN ihps_create_log ON ihps_create_log.ID = ihps_case.FK_createlogID WHERE DHS_evaluationID = '341287' AND ihps_create_log.incremental = 1;

Open in new window

I not sure that I need ExecuteScaler.   What I want is the simpliest way to return back the Primary Key of the record that I updated.

Did you try the OUTPUT clause yet?  Did it not work?
