I am trying to write a query that will check if a record exists and, if not , inserts the record in 1 trip to the db.
I have this query:
IF NOT EXISTS (Select award_number from hold_table_award WHERE award_number = 'duh') BEGIN INSERT INTO hold_table_award(award, title)VALUES(?,?)
This wont work in Oracle.
Anyone know how to make it work or if Oracle has something similar to IF NOT EXISTS

You can definitely use a stored procedure. I'm not sure of a way to do it using raw SQL.
