I have a situation where I am trying to protect users from themselves. In this case there are three tables involved:
1) Site table - PK - LOCNCODE
2) Item table - PK - ITEMNMBR
3) Item/Site table - PK - ITEMNMBR,LOCNCODE
I am looking to convert my old script that uses cursors to one that does not. I need to schedule a script to run every hour that insures that the Item/Site table always has a record for every item at every site. So let's assume my site table is called SITEMSTR, the item table is called ITEMMSTR and the item/Site table is called ITEMSITE.
The outer loop is a select for every item
The inner loop is a select for every site
Inside the loop it has to look for the item/site combination in the item/site table and if a record does not exist, create it using the current values for item and site.
