View Full Version : Looking for Documentation

10-29-2002, 07:19 PM
Hey all I am looking for some kind of documentation/tutorial. What I am looking for in this tutorial is examples how to create a script with some kind of if logic.

The reasoning for this is when I am writing small scripts for sql tables i want to create the database if it doesn't exist.

if anyone could send me in the right direction it would be great.
Thanks in advance.

well i figured this out. In case anyone else is curious on how to add if logic to a sql script you simply do this;

create database if not exists dbname;

create table if not exists tablename(tablevalues....);

hahaah yeah thanks, I just wasn't paying too much attention to the documentation, as well as I wasn't looking in the documentation in the right sections. But after hours of frustration I finally realized what was going on :) Thanks for the links though I know I will be there quite often :)
