Editor: Update 2 tables with composite keys

tenretnitenretni Posts: 2Questions: 1Answers: 0

I need to update two tables linked by left join. In the 2nd table, however, there are 2 composite columns which I only get answered with an error message when updating.
How could I update the 2 tables if I have 2 composite keys?
This would be the update routine in MS-SQL.
UPDATE [order_proposal_item] SET [customer_article_no] = '45453608', [customer_description] = 'test 123', [quantity] = '99' WHERE [order_proposal_id] = '189' AND [customer_article_no] = '45453608'

Many thanks for every support.
Kind regards,

    Hi Erich,

    I'm sorry to say that is not something that Editor currently supports. If your routine supports insert, update and delete (I don't actually know if a single routine can do that in MSSQL!) then it would be possible as it would appear to Editor as if it were just writing to a single table and any complexity about multiple tables and how to split the data could be done in the routine.

    Hi Allan,
    thanks for your answer. I understand the complexity. I will find another solution. Maybe I change the table content and make a grouping of my data. This means that you have to open the main record first so that you can edit the linked records then.
    Or I have to discuss with my database administrator to change the database schema. :wink:
