here's a cheat sheet of progress sql syntax:

What are you trying to translate this to?  It is saying:

If the value being tested (in the "?") is blank or null, then facility_code doesn't get changed (a.facility_code=a.facility_code)

Otherwise, the a.facility_code is being set to the value being passed in ("?").

The "?" is a dynamic parameter marker, and must be passed in when the dynamic sql is executed.
