I need to convert this to compatible code to sql server 2005 as the Merge statement is not supported in sql server 2005.


--Create @TableA and put 2 rows of data into it...
Declare @TableA as Table(TravID Int IDENTITY(6451,1), TravDetails varchar(200),ReqID Int)
Declare @loopCount Int
SET @loopCount = 0
WHILE (@loopCount <=1)
BEGIN
Insert into @TableA(TravDetails,ReqID)
values(NewID(),41)
SET @loopCount = @loopCount + 1
END


Declare @OldNewIDs as Table(Old_ID Int, New_ID Int)

MERGE @TableA As Target
USING (Select
TravID
,TravDetails
,ReqID
from @TableA
where ReqID = 41) As Source
on (0 = 1)
WHEN NOT MATCHED BY Target
THEN INSERT (TravDetails,ReqID)

OUTPUT Source.TravID Old_ID,Inserted.TravID New_ID
INTO @OldNewIDs;

select * from @TableA

In my opinion for 2005 you should write your code to use a SQL code structure like:

 INSERT INTO ....
      SELECT .....
      FROM ....
WHERE NOT EXISTS(....

instead of MERGE that is not supported in SQL 2005.

Can you double check the code you posted?  It appears to have errors.

Hi, this is not a duplicate question Anthony, one question is to check the syntax of a Merge and the other is to suggest a 2005 alternative to a Merge. As I see it they are totally different.
