how do I modify this sql select statement to include some if/then logic:
SELECT DISTINCT EMAIL FROM  tblBLAH WHERE division_name=@division_name and mgr_email=@mgr_email

I want to add to this that if @division_name is 'unknown' then we need the filter to be where division_name is null...

sorry, a small correction:

SELECT DISTINCT EMAIL
FROM  tblBLAH
WHERE (   ( division_name=@division_name AND @division_name <> 'unknown'  )
       OR (division_name IS NULL AND @division_name = 'unknown'  )
      )
AND mgr_email=@mgr_email

no, that's not what I want. it's *if* the parameter @division_name comes in as 'unknown' then select division_name is null
