create MySQL table if not exists, ignore the talbe if it exists but still needs checking.

right now I have the script to only create table if it doesn't exist:

CREATE PROCEDURE `create_auditriggers_forALL` (IN databaseName VARCHAR(40))  	
BEGIN  
DECLARE a, b, finished  INT DEFAULT 10;
DECLARE temptable VARCHAR(50);	
DECLARE today TIMESTAMP DEFAULT CURRENT_DATE;
DECLARE v1, v2, v3 TINYINT ;
DECLARE current_tablelist VARCHAR(50) DEFAULT ""; 
DECLARE fullexcutecmd VARCHAR(5000);
DECLARE fullexcutecmd2 VARCHAR(5000) ;
DECLARE BEFORE_DELETE TEXT  ;
DECLARE Final_BEFORE_DELETE TEXT DEFAULT "";
DECLARE AFTER_INSERT TEXT  ;
DECLARE Final_AFTER_INSERT TEXT DEFAULT ""  ;
DECLARE AFTER_UPDATE TEXT  ;
DECLARE Final_AFTER_UPDATE TEXT DEFAULT "";
DECLARE Check_Each_PrimaryKey_Autoincrement TEXT  ;
DECLARE Final_Check_Each_PrimaryKey_Autoincrement TEXT DEFAULT "";
DECLARE Check_index TEXT  ;
DECLARE Final_Check_index TEXT DEFAULT "";
 
 declare tablename CURSOR FOR 	

         SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 	
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=databaseName and table_type<> 'view' ;  
  

    
DECLARE CONTINUE HANDLER FOR NOT FOUND SET finished = 1;     
/*Specify what to do when no more records found, notice that the handler declaration must appear after variable and cursor declaration inside the stored procedures*/  	

OPEN tablename;	

	get_tabeslist: LOOP	
 
   FETCH tablename INTO current_tablelist;	
         IF finished = 1 THEN 	
          LEAVE  get_tabeslist;	
          END IF;	
  /* create the audit database's table */
  
SET @fullexcutecmd =CONCAT( 'CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS Audit_info.',databaseName,'_DBAudit_', current_tablelist,' LIKE ',databaseName,'.',current_tablelist,';'); 
 
  PREPARE stmt FROM @fullexcutecmd;
  EXECUTE stmt;
  DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;  


  END LOOP  get_tabeslist;	
close tablename;                             

END $$
DELIMITER ; 
    

Open in new window


but it seems that if I execute this SP more than one time, and it see the same table which was created, will give error message and stop.

Anyway to fix it ?

Maybe you can wrap the creation in an IF statement.  Although, it is not jumping out at me why the IF NOT EXISTS is not working as expected.  It may be helpful to SELECT the @fullexcutecmd variable and see what the CREATE TABLE looks like after the CONCAT to make sure it is nothing odd there.

Anyway, you can wrap the below lines in an IF:

DECLARE auditExistsFlag BIT(1);  
SET auditExistsFlag = 0;

SELECT 1 INTO auditExistsFlag
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='Audit_info'
AND TABLE_NAME = CONCAT(databaseName,'_DBAudit_', current_tablelist)
;

IF auditExistsFlag = 0 THEN
  PREPARE stmt FROM @fullexcutecmd;
  EXECUTE stmt;
  DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;  
END IF;

Open in new window


I hope that helps!

for example I can do this to BYPASS it by:


     SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='PCCWSP' and table_type <> 'view' and TABLE_NAME NOT IN ( SELECT  DISTINCT TABLE_NAME
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='Audit_info' and table_type<> 'view');

Open in new window


as the condition of the cursor, but the result don't allow me to check all table name everytime but only the new one.

So I have to use that first one.

exaction what I am thing, that's why I try to add the IF NOT EXISTS there but it don't works !!

"It may be helpful to SELECT the @fullexcutecmd variable and see what the CREATE TABLE looks like after the CONCAT to make sure it is nothing odd there.
"

this done at the beginning of this SP developement to troubleshoot everything ! MySQL is rubblish ! a lot of thing surprising DBA !

"SELECT 1 INTO auditExistsFlag"

why do this at the beginning and this variable never change to 1. And what is the main point of :

SELECT 1 INTO auditExistsFlag
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='Audit_info'
AND TABLE_NAME = CONCAT(databaseName,'_DBAudit_', current_tablelist)

I think the IF should be:

SELECT count(*) INTO auditExistsFlag
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='Audit_info'
AND TABLE_NAME = CONCAT(databaseName,'_DBAudit_', current_tablelist)
;

agree?

COUNT(*) should work, but there is either one table or zero; therefore, the way I have it should also.  If it is not changing to 1, then it is not recognizing the existence of the audit table, which is why you are getting the error.

thanks, I get it done already based on your suggsetion but I do this:

DECLARE TableExistsinAuditDB int (1) DEFAULT '0' ;
..
.
.
  SELECT count(*) INTO TableExistsinAuditDB    
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES            
WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA='Audit_info'                        
AND TABLE_NAME = CONCAT(databaseName,'_DBAudit_', current_tablelist);  

if TableExistsinAuditDB < 1 then

.
.
.
.

END IF;
