My table MEMBER_REGISTRATION has MemberId field is a computed field.

But i used my query like

if @position='Left'
update MEMBER_REGISTRATION set LEFTJOIN=@memberid where MEMBERID=@sponsor
else
update MEMBER_REGISTRATION set RIGHTJOIN=@memberid where MEMBERID=@sponsor

But i got error.

The column "MEMBERID" cannot be modified because it is either a computed column or is the result of a UNION operator.

I dont knw how use it.
Kindly help me.

Thanks in advance

can you explain what you're trying to do?
Both of your posted statements make no sense

couple things:

- a computed column can not be modified. To modify the value you would need to modify the column value(s) that are involved in the definition expression.

- the error you specified doesn't match up with the statements you posted. That error indicates that you are updating the [memberid] column but neither statement is modifying that column.
