You missed an important component of the assignment to sql_st:

If you don't want to insert, change your SQL to an insert statement.

If what you actually mean is to do a conditional insert/update depending on if the data is already there. Use an if statement to run different SQL.

You also have to commit for the changes to take place unless auto commit is turned on.
