Thanks so much Thomas! I have managed to apply without any failures by following your approach. Here is a sample what I did after applying the patch. testdb=# BEGIN; BEGIN testdb=# testdb=# MERGE INTO Stock USING Buy ON Stock.item_id = Buy.item_id testdb-# WHEN MATCHED THEN UPDATE SET balance = balance + Buy.volume testdb-# WHEN NOT MATCHED THEN DO NOTHING; MERGE 1 testdb=# SELECT * FROM Stock; item_id | balance ---------+--------- 20 | 1900 10 | 3200 (2 rows) testdb=# ROLLBACK; ROLLBACK I think and believe that though it may be tedious to do so, it is the style Thomas followed to help me that hackers should do to help newbies so that they can pursue their ambition. I am humbled to say that I didn't know how to search git commits by a specific day like what Thomas did.
