i have this script i have been tring to do, but not sure how
the 'loop' would work, if anyone could help me please...
say i have 3 tables, for ease i will call them employee,
employee - empid, firstname, lastname, ssn
assignment - assid, payrate
pay - serialID, Batchid, empid, assid, payamount
ok, lets say i have a table (clocks) that has ssn, assid,
it has 1000 records in it. what i want to do is take that
clocks table, match the ssn with the employee table to get the
empid, match the assid with assignment to get payrate, take the
hours times the payrate to get the payamount, and insert that line
in the pay table... 'loop' through this until the end... but, one
last catch... the batchid is say 200, but, there can only be 100
records per batch, so it must stop at 100 and change the batchID to
201, do another 100 records, change batch to 202 etc...
everything i have tried so far has been a very pathetic
attempt. in all honesty this is a clock csv file, which i plan to
use coldfusion to dump it into a timesheet table in an informix
database. the pay table actually has 85 different fields,.
i am confident that once i get this basic loop
action done, i can accomplish the rest of this script... any help
