Hi Experts,

I'm wondering if you can reference a  alias column (columns added together) within a case statement:

The aslias columns is S_NET_INCM.

Select  SCPL,    EIN,    SOI_MAJ_CD,   SOI_DIV_CD,
             NVL(NET_INCM, 0) +   NVL(S_NET_INCM_OTHR_RNTL, 0) +  NVL(S_NET_LTCG_LSS, 0) +
              NVL(S_NET_STCG_LSS, 0) AS "S_NET_INCM" ,
             NVL(NET_OTHR_INCM, 0),
             CASE
             WHEN  "S_NET_INCM: < 0 THEN
                  0
            ELSE
                 S_NET_INCM_POS
           END "S_NET_INCM_POS"
          FROM ENTITY_ADDITIONAL JOIN CONTROL C USING (SCPL, EDIT_1_2)

Thanks

Something to try:


SELECT SCPL, EIN, SOI_MAJ_CD, SOI_DIV_CD, NET_OTHR_INCM,

       CASE

          WHEN S_NET_INCM < 0 THEN 0

          ELSE S_NET_INCM_POS

       END S_NET_INCM_POS

  FROM (SELECT SCPL, EIN, SOI_MAJ_CD, SOI_DIV_CD,

                 NVL (NET_INCM, 0)

               + NVL (S_NET_INCM_OTHR_RNTL, 0)

               + NVL (S_NET_LTCG_LSS, 0)

               + NVL (S_NET_STCG_LSS, 0) S_NET_INCM,

               NVL (NET_OTHR_INCM, 0) NET_OTHR_INCM

          FROM ENTITY_ADDITIONAL) A

       JOIN

       CONTROL C USING (SCPL, EDIT_1_2)

A possible workaround:

SELECT a.SCPL, a.EIN ....,
 CASE
             WHEN  "a.S_NET_INCM: < 0 THEN
                  0
            ELSE
                 S_NET_INCM_POS
           END "S_NET_INCM_POS"
FROM
(Select SCPL,    EIN,    SOI_MAJ_CD,   SOI_DIV_CD,
             NVL(NET_INCM, 0) +   NVL(S_NET_INCM_OTHR_RNTL, 0) +  NVL(S_NET_LTCG_LSS, 0) +
              NVL(S_NET_STCG_LSS, 0) AS "S_NET_INCM" ,
             NVL(NET_OTHR_INCM, 0) AS "NET_OTHR_INCM",
                        FROM ENTITY_ADDITIONAL JOIN CONTROL C USING (SCPL, EDIT_1_2)) a
