Hallo Team,

Let me show you my sql statement and explain what i would like to do:

update verify_interbill.mtn_inbound
set charge = round((a.duration/60)*0.13,2)
where anum in (select distinct(anum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound)
and bnum in (select distinct(bnum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound)
and rate = 0.21;


Let me explain what i would like to do:

I would like to apply the statement above until
(((charge - 84481.35)/84481.35) * 100) =< 5


Regards,

Then do so. If you are unable to, then post a valid test case.

Note that you don't need DISTINCT in IN SELECT clause.

Ok i ran my statement:

while 

(((charge - 84481.35)/84481.35) * 100) =< 5 

begin 

update verify_interbill.mtn_inbound 
set charge = round((a.duration/60)*0.13,2) 
where anum in (select distinct(anum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) 
and bnum in (select distinct(bnum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) 
and rate = 0.21;


I am getting errors:

mysql> while  (((charge - 84481.35)/84481.35) * 100) =< 5 begin  update verify_interbill.mtn_inbound set charge = round((duration/60)*0.13,2) where anum in (select distinct(anum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) and bnum in (select distinct(bnum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) and rate = 0.21;

Post a test case. If you don't understand what a test case is, then click on the link that Michel Cadot posted. Read the content, if you still don't understand, post here what it is that you don't understand.

In addition,. why don't you post this on a MySQL forum as that seems to be the technology that you're working with.

Hallo Team,

Please help, have a look at my script:

while  (((charge - 84481.35)/84481.35) * 100) =< 5 begin  update verify_interbill.mtn_inbound set charge = round((duration/60)*0.13,2) where anum in (select distinct(anum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) and bnum in (select distinct(bnum) from verify_interbill.mtn_outbound) and rate = 0.21;


I am getting an error:

ERROR 1064 (42000): 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 'while  (((charge - 84481.35)/84481.35) * 100) =< 5 begin  update verify_interbil' at line 1
