I guess you want something like this:
public dataset GetCustomers(EnumCustomers Cust)
  {
     if (Cust.AllCustomers == EnumCustomers.AllCustomers)
     {
     }
  } 

public dataset GetCustomers()
{
   return GetCustomers(EnumCustomers.AllCustomers);
}

its like this All I want is to Get Null Value to be assigned to @city
         if AllCustomers is passed I call
                Select * from Customer
               Case Cust.californiaCustomers
                     Select * from Customers where place="CA"
                Case Cust.NewyorkCustomers
                    Select * from Customers where place ="NY"
Now I want to do like this  (I dont want 3 conditions) like above
             if AllCustomers Passed  I want to pass  NULL  which stored proc understands and gets
                     Select * from customer
                             ELSE
                             

=============Stored Proc
Create procude Getcustomer
@city BIT
IF @City is NOT NULL
             Select * from Customers
               Else
                     Select * from customers where City=@City

I assume that BIT is not the data type of the City column?

the sql procedure would look like this:
Create procude Getcustomer
  @city VARCHAR(20)
AS
Select * from Customers
where ( City=@City OR @City IS NULL)

Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]Billing EngineerCommented:

ok lets consider the same stored procdure.. now how do i tune my function  to accept NULL when ALLCUSTOMERS Is passed.
I dont want to have  
   3 case Statement ie (Switch)
          I want something like
                                   Case  Null (ie AllCustomers)
                                 
                                      Case else
                                                pass the  EnumPassedvalue

i want to use ? and assign it to variable when Enum is passed and then

Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]Billing EngineerCommented:
tell me if this is what you want:

public dataset GetCustomers(string city)
  {
     SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Getcustomer", youconnectionobject");
     cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
     cmd.Parameters.Add("@city", city)
     
     etc etc etc to fill the dataset from the SqlCommand
     

  }

public dataset GetCustomers()
{
   return GetCustomers(string.empty);
}



and the procedure looking like this:

Create procude Getcustomer
  @city VARCHAR(20) = ''
AS
Select * from Customers
where ( City=@City OR @City IS NULL OR @City = '')

i should have been more clear... sorry about this .  I have just tested
In my function I capture the enum passed into the variable  
 int x = (int)Cust;  (cust being the Enum passed in function)
X gets value 0 if (cust.AllCustomers)  1 if(cust.CalifronaiCustomers) 2 (cust.NewyorkCustomers)
Now If x value ==0  I want to use ? and convert to NULL

Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]Billing EngineerCommented:
I am not 100% clear why you actually use an enum...
how does the user "choose"?
if it is a listbox/combo/radio button etc, set the selecteditem.value to the string value you want to search for, and the "all" item to '%'

and your procedure will be like this: (assuming that City is the city name):


Create procude Getcustomer
  @city VARCHAR(20) = '%'
AS
Select * from Customers
where ( City LIKE @City )
