Writing a move and update storedprocedure. Sql2000

I need to write a stored Procedure that will be able to write to a table, but before
it writes to the table it needs to check if the record exists and if so it must
first move it to a History table and then update the record in the first table where it is writing to. Like Insert into Table
if exists (select * from table where a.id1 = 123)
then if it does not exist it must write it into "table"
but if it does exist then it must move it to "tablehistory" and then just update the
record in the "table" table. Any suggestions?
You should probably have a test with a couple subqueries for this if you want to avoid recompiles and have the fastest execution plan. First procedure: IF (SELECT column_list FROM table WHERE id1 = 123) IS NOT NULL
EXEX TableUpdate
EXEC TableInsert
TableUpdate would insert to tablehistory and update changed fields.
TableInsert would just insert new row(s). MeanOldDBA

Thanks for the help.
