The answer is very simple.

You can not use a where clause with insert query. Why? Because an insert creates a new record and it will be created at the bottom of the table only.

If you wish to change some existing value use Update instead of Insert.

"created at the bottom of the table only" doesn't make any sense

As everyone said, you can not use Where clause in Insert statement. but you want to add detail according to the type_id, so i suggest you to create one StoredProcedure.

This stored procedure will take the input and it will check for the Type_id in the database
1) if type_id record exist then update the record.
2) otherwise add new record with type_id.

Above case will apply only if your type_id is identity element.

Hope i answered your query.

I am not able to understand your answer completely. is it like this :

if row_exists then
' run update
' run insert

Yes because if you have identity value of type_id then you can not insert similar value in the table you can only do the update of the record. let me know if it is not clear.
