I have 2 diff fields, code which is always "1M" and inv_cd which is 001 and 002...in my following case stmt i would to say that if code is 1M then 'FM' but if inv_cd has 002 then SOLDMTG, in following stmt i am getting all FM even in some inv_cd there is 002, is this possible?


case when code = '1M' then 'FM' when inv_cd = 002 then 'SOLDMTG' end as PRODID

well, the order of the WHEN clauses is important:
case when inv_cd = '002' then 'SOLDMTG' when code = '1M' then 'FM'  end as PRODID
