The rows referenced in the TOP expression are not arranged in any order. The TOP clause is applied after the entire source table and the entire target table are joined and the joined rows that do not qualify for an insert, update, or delete action are removed.Specifies the temporary named result set or view, also known as common table expression (CTE), defined within the scope of the UPDATE statement.Results after the update: a b c d ———————————— 1 x y z 2 a1 b1 c1 3 t x z DB2 LUW: –Same as Oracle– UPDATE TABLEA SET (b, c, d) = (SELECT b1, c1, d1 from TABLEB WHERE TABLEB.a1 = TABLEA.a and TABLEB.e1 40); Results after the update: a b c d ———————————— 1 x y z 2 a1 b1 c1 3 t x z NOTE: It is very important to make sure that your where clause for the update statement is correct since that is what identifies the records that the update statement is going to qualify and do the update upon.
If the problem persists, replication metadata might be incorrect; consult Books The @property parameter value must be either ‘description’, ‘sync_object’, ‘type’, ‘ins_cmd’, ‘del_cmd’, ‘upd_cmd’, ‘filter’, ‘dest_table’, ‘dest_object’, ‘creation_script’, ‘pre_creation_cmd’, ‘status’, ‘schema_option’, or ‘destination_owner’.
Cannot create the subscription because the subscription already exists in the subscription database.
For example, inserting a row if it does not exist, or updating the row if it does match.
When simply updating one table based on the rows of another table, improved performance and scalability can be achieved with basic INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE statements.
Only one subscription to the same publication is allowed in each subscription database.
Drop the subscription and add it again if necessary.When you design relational expressions, you have to decide whether you want a single row to match multiple rows (in a one-to-many—1: M—relationship) or you want many rows to match a single row in the joined table (i.e., you want to update all rows).In a 1: M relationship, SQL Server always uses the last row it finds for the update.For more information, see WITH common_table_expression (Transact-SQL).TOP ( can be either a number or a percentage of the rows.For a complete reference of all the data types available in MS Access, My SQL, and SQL Server, go to our complete Data Types reference.
