I guess I don't have enough experience in sql syntax so I am looking for help....

This code works perfectly IF and only IF the product (represented by $query->row['p_id']) already is in the product_special table.

Code: Select all

$this->db->query("UPDATE `" . DB_PREFIX . "product_special` SET price = ' " . $specialdbprice  . " ' WHERE product_id = ' " . $query->row['p_id'] . "'"); 
But if the product doesn't have a special already I would like to insert it. So I tried "replace into"

Code: Select all

$this->db->query("REPLACE INTO `" . DB_PREFIX . "product_special` SET price = ' " . $specialdbprice  . " ' WHERE product_id = ' " . $query->row['p_id'] . "'"); 
But that just gives me an error for what seems like the WHERE clause....

Could someone help me understand how I could do this?

Thank you,
Mike

How about this

Code: Select all

$this->db->query("INSERT INTO `" . DB_PREFIX . "product_special` SET price = ' " . $specialdbprice  . " ', product_id = ' " . $query->row['p_id'] . "' ON DUPLICATE KEY product_id=product_id");

Of course I figure it out after posting but this one took me a bit since 1: the syntax is different and 2: replace into seemed to duplicate records...

replace into needs to in a format like:
(`product_id`,`price`) VALUES ($proid,$specialdbprice)

Onward to my next issue with this script! :)

Qphoria,

So sorry I didn't see your reply as I was working on it and replied blindly (didn't refresh the page to see your post - BUT I see it this morning!). I'll try yours this morning it already looks better then mine.

The ON DUPLICATE KEY is the piece I need to research and is the piece I just might be missing but in my hack I did a delete first since it was duplicating (or adding another) record in the table.

That is what I get for working too late into my sleeping time.

I must say thank you very much for the code and I'll give it a shot!

I did get an error:

2014-08-02 7:24:50 - PHP Notice: Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'product_id=product_id' at line 1<br />Error No: 1064<br />INSERT INTO `product_special` SET price = ' 11.02 ', product_id = ' 203' ON DUPLICATE KEY product_id=product_id in /store/system/database/mysql.php on line 50

So I am researching (trying to learn) the ON DUPLICATE KEY to check syntax.

I updated it to:

Code: Select all

$this->db->query("INSERT INTO `" . DB_PREFIX . "product_special` SET price = ' " . $specialdbprice  . " ', product_id = ' " . $query->row['p_id'] . "' ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE product_id = ' " . $query->row['p_id'] . "' ");
Which doesn't kick an error but it does add records for that product in the product_specials table. So after running it 3 times I have 4 records in the product_specials table for that one product.

I don't know why it doesn't work as reading looks like it should (and shouldn't duplicate) but as for this morning I am going back to my code of delete then insert, and I'll research ON DUPLICATE KEY a bit more.
