I'm trying to drop a table from within a query before I recreate it. The design is still in flux, thus it is easier to drop the old table and recreate it from within the query, rather than have a separate alter table statement and then changing the columns in the query as well.
Anyway, I'm using SQL Assistant, not BTEQ. When I ran some of the suggested solutions I found in the forum archives, such as:
DROP TABLE DROP TABLE tablename ; .IF ERRORCODE=3807 THEN .GOTO CONTINUE .IF ERRORCODE>4 THEN .GOTO ERRORS .LABEL CONTINUE CREATE TABLE ... .IF ERRORCODE>4 THEN .GOTO ERRSEV .QUIT 0 .LABEL ERRORS .QUIT ERRORCODE
It didn't want to work in SQL Assistant. It immediately kicked out of the query and posted the error in the history window, instead of running the GOTO statement. I'm used to using an IF EXISTS (select tablename) THEN DROP TABLE, as I normally use SQL Server.
Thanks in advance.
