Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'IF'.  
 

INSERT INTO barriosReport_Items(TechCode,Supervisor,DiscOrdStat,MAC,JobStat,DueDtTm,JobID,JobType,WireCenter,created_datetime,barriosReport_Transaction_id) 
SELECT '',
    '',
    '13',
    '',
     IF EXISTS ( SELECT jobstat_id FROM barriosReport_JobStat WHERE (jobstat = 'CAN') ) 
        SELECT jobstat_id FROM barriosReport_JobStat WHERE (jobstat = 'CAN')
     ELSE 
         INSERT INTO barriosReport_JobStat (jobstat)
         VALUES ('CAN') SELECT @@Identity as jobstat_id ENDIF ,
