The precise syntax depends on the server you're using (the examples below works on MS SQL Server, but may not work elsewhere)

For a simple if/else, it's ...
+if ([test_condition])
+[commands_to_perform]
+else
+[commands_to_perform]

if the logic depends on the content of the records, you need to

SELECT
+WHERE [condition]
+AND [condition]  --optional--

For a NOT, you can alter the syntax of the AND condition

To be honest, I've never found a need for an OR - but if OR doesn't work, you should be able to repeat the WHILE and add a different condition - the records should be used in addition to those selected by the first WHILE (which is, essentially, what an OR does)
