Printing No Records Found

I am new to this. Someone please help.

I am creating stored procedures that queries the tables to pull certain information together in a listing (report). I would like to be able to print to the user "No records found", if no records were found based on the search criteria. I can able to query the information, but can't get the "No records found" to print. The listing just comes back with no records.

Is there a canned syntax/statement to make this happen and should it be placed before or after the select statement?

Is there some sort of end of file checking that needs to happen?

try an IF ELSE query


IF (there are records) { DO SOMETHING
} ELSE {

you can expand on this by using ELSEIF instead of the first ELSE statement as long as you finish the whole thing with an ELSE statement

hope this helps

Thank you. I have been using the if, else statement. It seems to work in some of my stored procedures, but not the others. Here is a sample of what I have done. Any more suggestions?

If Exists (select 1 from table_name, table_name1
where table_name.field name = table name1.field_name)

Select .......

print ' no records found'
