After a condition/statement execution, if we need to alter the flow of execution to start from a particular label, then GOTO statement will help you. Basically, GOTO keyword uses to skip statement process and continue from a particular label.
GOTO Statement in SQL Server contains two parts –
GOTO statement declaration: GOTO statement contains GOTO keywords and label_name as below.
Label Declaration: Label contains label_name only with at least one statement as below.
select * from tbl
Label_name must be unique within the scope of the code and after label_name declaration, there should be one SQL-statement.
Example: How can we use GOTO statement in SQL server, you can see below.
DECLARE @rating INT=10
In above example, we have created one GOTO statement lable_name is Codefari if the @rating value is 8 then code will branch to the label called Codefari.
