Is it possible to have a conditional where statement if so how.

ie if a value in the select statement equals a something then the part of the where statement would equal one thing if not another

this is what i tried.
WHERE completed = 1
AND CASE WHEN touch_reason in (19,20) THEN
DATEDIFF(hour, cdol.maxdate , getDate()) > 12
ELSE
DATEDIFF(hour, cdol.maxdate , getDate()) > 0
END

Hi dkilby,

WHERE completed = 1 AND
    ((touch_reason IN (19, 20) AND DATEDIFF(hour, cdol.maxdate, GETDATE()) > 12) OR
    (touch_reason NOT IN (19, 20) AND DATEDIFF(hour, cdol.maxdate, GETDATE()) > 0))

Regards,

Patrick
