You can achieve this by:
1. Create a new table
2. Insert the data in this.
3. Write a trigger on this table
4. In trigger issue UPDATE and check whether it updated any records. If NO,
( here, i am updating first and inserting.. just reverse )
The code looks like:
update tempxitag set qty = qty + nqty where
ccod = cccod
GET DIAGNOSTICS nFound = ROW_COUNT;
If nFound = 0 then
insert into tempxitag( ccod, qty)
values (cccod, nqty );
