SQL::UpdateStatement Object


The SQL::UpdateStatement object encapsulates the parsing and properties of a SQL UPDATE statement. as a result, it has the most properties. Its children are the various clauses that make up a complete UPDATE statement.


Note that the fields to update and the corresponding value are specified in a comma delimited list of name/value pairs.

dim conn as SQL::Connection
dim upd as SQL::UpdateStatement
dim cs as SQL::CallResult
dim connString as C
dim sql_update as C
connString = "{A5API='Access', FileName='c:\program files\a5v7\mdbfiles\alphasports.mdb'}"
sql_update = "update customer set bill_city = 'Phoenix', bill_postal_code = '08000', bill_state_region = 'AZ' where customer_id = 1"
if .not. conn.open(connString) then
end if
if .not. upd.parse(sql_update) then
    ui_msg_box("Error", upd.callresult.text)
end if
if .not. upd.execute(conn) then
end if
cs = upd.CallResult
ui_msg_box("Call result", cs.Text)
