Target Database is Paradox.
As a result of a query I end up with an Answer Table with the Column
What I need to do is to add new records to another Table which has the
CLIENT_ID is to be populated from the Answer Table.
CAMPAIGN_ID is constant for all the records that will be inserted, say
Status is contant and must be set to 'Send Mail'.
The problem is the UNIQUE_ID field. This is in the format of a dbid with the
record number appended. So for example the first record could be xywr1, the
second xywr2, the third xywr3 and so on. What I need to do is to somehow
generate this ID as part of the query. I know the next available value at
the time of executing the query but I have no idea how to use this as part
of the query when I insert the records.
The number of records to insert could range from 1 to 10000, so doing this
via a query leaves direct calls to the BDE for dead, we would probably be
measuring seconds against minutes.
So my question is can I do this by a query or even a series of queries, if
so how ? I prefer QBE but Local SQL is fine as well.
Thanks for any help
