Hello programmers.  I am attempting to rewrite the following MS Access Query in to SQL Script.  But I'm not sure how to handle the "AND" part in line 3 of the SQL script below.  can someone help me with that syntax?  Thanks

/*ORGINAL QUERY SCRIPT:*/
SELECT DISTINCTROW IIf(Left([el2],3)='002','299999',IIf(Left([el2],3)='003' And [el2]<>'003035','399999','999999')) AS exp1,
testit2.el1, Sum(testit2.Actual) AS SumOfActual, Sum(testit2.Budget) AS SumOfBudget, Sum(testit2.Prior_Act) AS SumOfPrior_Act,
Sum(testit2.Actual_YTD) AS SumOfActual_YTD, Sum(testit2.Budget_YTD) AS SumOfBudget_YTD, Sum(testit2.Prior_YTD) AS SumOfPrior_YTD,
testit2.year, testit2.period, testit2.base_grp
FROM testit2
GROUP BY IIf(Left([el2],3)='002','299999',IIf(Left([el2],3)='003' And [el2]<>'003035','399999','999999')), testit2.el1, testit2.year,
testit2.period, testit2.base_grp;

/*CONVERTED SQL SCRIPT:*/
SELECT DISTINCT
CASE WHEN(Left([el2],3))='002'THEN'299999'
WHEN(Left([el2],3))='003'And [el2]<>'003035','399999','999999')) AS exp1,
oas_testit2.el1,
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual) AS SumOfActual,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget) AS SumOfBudget,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_Act) AS SumOfPrior_Act,
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual_YTD) AS SumOfActual_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget_YTD) AS SumOfBudget_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_YTD) AS SumOfPrior_YTD,
oas_testit2.year, oas_testit2.period, oas_testit2.base_grp
FROM oas_testit2
GROUP BY
CASE WHEN(Left([el2],3)='002'THEN'299999'
WHEN(Left([el2],3)='003' And [el2]<>'003035','399999','999999'))
oas_testit2.el1,

You're close.  Try this for the CASE statement:

CASE WHEN Left([el2],3))='002'THEN'299999'
      WHEN Left([el2],3))='003' And [el2]<>'003035' THEN '399999'
     ELSE '999999' END AS exp1,
