Experts i am trying to replace a dynamic sql query inside my sproc with a general statement but using CASE. I am trying to replace if then else and appending to a string with using CASE stmts...I believe that will improve the performance of the query. Is that correct ? I wrote something but incorrect, can u please guide me to correct it ? I hope you understand what i am trying to achieve here.

declare @size integer
set @size=1
select * from size + (case @size<>0 then ',size_scale where size.size_scale_id=size_scale.size_scale_id and size.size_scale_id=@size' end)

declare @size integer, @sql varchar(max)
set @size=1
set @sql = 'select * from size ' + (case @size<>0 then ',size_scale where size.size_scale_id=size_scale.size_scale_id and size.size_scale_id=' + CAST(@size AS varchar) end)
exec(@sql)

ithis should do i think
if u wanna to return all records just set @size = null

declare @size int

set @size=1


select
    *
from size
left join size_scale
    on size.size_scale_id = size_scale.size_scale_id
where
 (@size is null or size.size_scale_id = @size )

Can you include the rest of your SQL.  I'm guessing you are trying to do something like this...
declare @size integer 
set @size=1
 
declare @sql nvarchar(max),@parmList nvarchar(max)
set @sql = 'select field1,field2,field3 '
 
 
if @size <>0 
 
  set @SQL = @SQL + ',size_scale from MyTable where size.size_scale_id=size_scale.size_scale_id and size.size_scale_id=@size' end
else
set @SQL = @SQL + ' from MyTable ' end
 
set @parmList = '@size int'
exec sp_executesql @SQL,@parmlist,@size=@size

Well i am trying to lessen the amount of time taken to execute a set of 4 procedures. There are many parameters that get appended into the query based on their value. I am trying to write one select query that will take care of all the "if then else " scenarios and the query will be cached as well.
I am using sp_executesql as well but that also does not show much effect when the values of the input parameters are changing every time i execute the sql.
