Sql Query Lookup based on range

Posted on 2016-09-29
Last Modified: 2016-10-27
Here is some sample data from 2 sql 2008 tables

CampaignSeg Table

PlayerID      Seg     LowPoints  HighPoints
1                   56

Campaign_Seg_LookUp  Table

Campaign      SegFloor         SegCeiling          LowPoints          Highpoints
280                35                   49.99999      5000                  6000
280                      50                      74.99999      7000                  8000
280                      75                   1499.99999      9000                   10000

I am trying to write an update query that will populate the Low and high points on CampaignSeg Table from the Campaign_Seg_LookUp  Table based on player segment

Using the above sample data,  table entry in would be as follows (since 56 between the segfloor of 50 and segceiling of 74.999

Playerid        Seg         Lowpoints     Highpoints
 1                   56           7000               8000

Please Note:  The number of entries in Campaign_Seg_LookUp  Table can vary from campaign to campaign along with the ranges so can't really do hard coded case statements

DECLARE @Campaign_Seg_Lookup TABLE
	Campaign	INT,
