I want like an if then else structure when I use an IF EXISTS CLAUSE. In that case would the code below be correct where I have two BEGIN END statements ?
---------------------------------
IF  EXISTS ( SELECT Code from zoop where Code = @newPLAYERId)
BEGIN
update zoop
    set Code = '####'  
    from zoop t
    where t.DateEntered > ( select min(x.DateEntered) from zoop x ) -- AND SUBSTRING(t.Code,1,1) = 'A'
END
ELSE
BEGIN

END

Yes, the if/else structure you have above is correct, but you will need to put at least one valid statement in the ELSE block (it can't be empty).

 The other code looks okay for a sample.
