Using SQL Server 2000, I want to add a new View, such as this:

SELECT Trim([Name]) From [tblData]

or

Select iif([Age] < 30, 'Young', 'Old') From tblAges

In the first case, it tells me unrecognized function, and in the second case, it tells me it doesn't recognize it doesn't recognize the Equal sign.  

Any suggestions?

sql server does not have trim, but does have ltrim and rtrim
SELECT rtrim(lTrim([Name])) From [tblData]

iif will be translated into a case statement:

Select CASE WHEN [Age] < 30 THEN 'Young' ELSE 'Old' END From tblAges

IFF  is not a recognised function in sql server

Select case when [Age] < 30 then  'Young' else  'Old'  end  as SomeColumn  From tblAges
