What are some real-life examples of using the While statement that don't involve RBAR code?

I made a slight change to your code:

DECLARE @I INT = 0;
WHILE @I <= 10
BEGIN
IF @I%2 = 0
IF TAN(@I) > 0
PRINT 'Value ' + CAST(@I as char(1)) + ' is EVEN and the TANGENT is greater than zero'
ELSE
PRINT 'Value ' + CAST(@I as char(1)) + ' is EVEN and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero'
ELSE
IF TAN(@I) > 0
PRINT 'Value ' + CAST(@I as char(1)) + ' is ODD and the TANGENT is greater than zero'
ELSE
PRINT 'Value ' + CAST(@I as char(1)) + ' is ODD and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero'
SET @I += 1;
END



And the output I got is:
Value 0 is EVEN and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 1 is ODD and the TANGENT is greater than zero
Value 2 is EVEN and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 3 is ODD and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 4 is EVEN and the TANGENT is greater than zero
Value 5 is ODD and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 6 is EVEN and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 7 is ODD and the TANGENT is greater than zero
Value 8 is EVEN and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value 9 is ODD and the TANGENT is less than or equal to zero
Value * is EVEN and the TANGENT is greater than zero


How do I handle this?

Creating dynamic SQL for backups.

The "Bin Fill" and "Load Balancing" problems are classic problems that are difficult to solve without an explicit loop.

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
