Hi Valentina Developers,

Now you can use in Valentina 6.0 a new powerful command 'MERGE'. This command is from SQL2003 standard.

This command allows you to combine by some logic INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE in the single command. On of the simplest tasks it can solve - is so named UPSERT = UPdate + inSERT

In the SQL2003 standard they talk only about UPDATE and INSERT. We have take some ideas from MS SQL, to be able to do DELETE also.

You can read syntax of this new command on WIKI page about Valentina SQL 6.0 Grammar

EXAMPLE of UPSERT task with help of MERGE:

- Let you have tables T1 (ID, f2) and T2 (ID, f2)
- Let you want COPY values from T2.f2 to T1.f2 if that records have the same API.

Up to now this was possible todo with sub-query of kind
UPDATE T1 SET f2 = (SELECT f2 FROM T2 join T1 ON T2.ID=T1.ID)

Query which do the same job, and much more effective looks as

UPDATE SET f2 = T2.f2
