I have a query to update a row in a table.
UPDATE EMPL_TBL EMP
SET EMP.PERMENANT_IND = 'Y'
WHERE EMP.EMP_ID = :EMP-EMP-ID
AND EMP.EMP_NAME = :EMP-NAME
AND EMP.CITY = :EMP-CITY
Now I have to update permanent flag for an employee with id as 1 and name 'peter ' and city as null,
Could any one let me know will it be possible to do this using null indicator var with EMP-CITY variable while embedding this query in COBOL.
It should be possible to do this using null indicators; before update statement Move -1 to the appropriate null indicator and then when you issue the SQL update use EMPCITY= :EMP-CITY:null-ind-varaiable. Try this out, it should be fine.
The other method ofcourse without using the null varaiable is to issue sql update with EMPCITY=NULL.
