SQL query to decode a value returned from function

Posted on 2008-06-18

I have a stored procedure which has a few parameters.
One of the parameters is @Check

I need to decode a value returned from a function
fn_CheckValid which takes in a string of an order no and returns 0 or 1

what I need to do is if the value returned is 0 - interpret as false if 1 interpret as true
and then check this with @Check parameter. @Check can have only two vlaue true or false

So I need somehow to convert the value returned from the function to true or false and then check if it matches the parameter @Check

This is what I have now, but is incorrect since the value returned from function is fn_CheckValid is only 1 or 0 and the @check is only true or false.

fn_CheckValid(strOrder) = @Check

what data type is @check ? assuming that it is "bit" data type, that code will do.

Angel, I had @Check as string, I made that a bit and it worked.

Aneesh , your solution worked too, but I was looking for minimal change on the code I had
