I have an existing query in Access that I need to get into SQL server. The query has an immediate if. SQL does not seem to use the IIF function. How might I write this in SQL?

replace the IIF by CASE statements:

SELECT MtgReg.MtgID, MtgReg.RegNum, HStatus.HStatusName,
case when HStatus.HStatusName<>"Reserved" then Null
     else Sum(([MtgHInv].[RmRate]*(DateDiff("d",[ADate],[DDate])) ))
AS HotelCost FROM .....
