Subject Re: [firebird-support] multiple row problem in sp update Alan.Davies@aldis-systems.co.uk 2007-05-20T19:02:35Z
Thanks for your input Svein, it helped to guide me to the answer. What
I've done is to add a field to the Weigh table - ash_rate - which gets
updates at the first stage and then use that value to calculate the
output I want. (And yes there are many suppliers and many different
supplier ash and water payment rates)
This now works every time.

Alan

begin
update weigh
set
dollar_rate=coalesce(
(select water_rate
from supp_waterrates
where weigh.supp_code=supp_waterrates.supp_code
and weigh.water_pc>=supp_waterrates.water_from
and weigh.water_pc<supp_waterrates.water_to
),0),
ash_rate=coalesce(
(select ash_rate
from supp_ashrates
where weigh.supp_code=supp_ashrates.supp_code
and weigh.ash_pc>=supp_ashrates.ash_from
and weigh.ash_pc<supp_ashrates.ash_to
),0),
ash_deduction=coalesce(
(select
round(ceiling(supp_ashrates.ash_from-weigh.ash_pc)*weigh.ash_rate,2)
from supp_ashrates
where weigh.supp_code=supp_ashrates.supp_code
and weigh.ash_pc>=supp_ashrates.ash_from
and weigh.ash_pc<supp_ashrates.ash_to),0),
net_rate=dollar_rate+ash_deduction, /* calculated amount
is a minus */
dollar_total=net_rate*tonnes
where current_YN='Y';
