Hey all,

Basic question,
I have a table structure as so.

id | title

ID | code | titleid

id | countyname

id | countyid | componentid | money

the asp page passes
1 - N county ids and a title id

I want to copy all componentids for a given titleid into the CountyBudget Table for each county.

However, I only want to insert if the record does not exist.

This is quite simple in ASP, create an array of the components and run some code within a Loop, but this is very INefficient and I am trying to improve my use of stored procs.

Is there a way that is better than simply using a cursor and doing the logic?

Thanks much
