Subj:   Re: Conditional Table Drop
 
From:   richard.knott1

If you're doing it via a BTEQ batch job then the easiest way to do it is:-

     Select count(*) from table a;

     IF ERRORCODE = 3801 THEN .GOTO DROP
     IF ERRORCODE = 0 THEN .GOT NO_DROP

     .LABEL DROP

     DROP TABLE table A";

     .LABEL NO_DROP

     Carry on with your SQL here

That way you only ever enter into the drop statement if the errorcode = 3801 (table doesn't exist).

Apologies if this isn't what you asked.


Regards

Richard
