I am trying to get values using embeded SQL.

I have written something like the following:
strQueryText.AppendLine("RuleNumber = RuleNumberBlackJack + RuleNumberPoker,")
..
..
Some Calculations
..
..
strQueryText.AppendLine("ORDER BY RuleNumber")

This works fine and it should :). But the issue is: i want to ORDER BY RuleNumberPoker which is
 
strQueryText.AppendLine("ORDER BY")
strQueryText.AppendLine("CASE WHEN RuleNumberPoker LIKE '%^[0-9.]%' then RuleNumberPoker ELSE NULL END,")
strQueryText.AppendLine("CASE WHEN RuleNumberPoker LIKE '%[0-9.]%' then CONVERT(float, RuleNumberPoker) ELSE NULL END, RuleNumberPoker")

then concatanate both the rules. How do i do achieve this, please help

I'm not clear on what you are asking, but I'm going to take a guess that you are trying to concatenate a SQL string together.

Make sure there is a space between (before or after) each append.
strQueryText.AppendLine(" ORDER BY")
strQueryText.AppendLine(" CASE WHEN RuleNumberPoker LIKE '%^[0-9.]%' then RuleNumberPoker ELSE NULL END,")
strQueryText.AppendLine(" CASE WHEN RuleNumberPoker LIKE '%[0-9.]%' then CONVERT(float, RuleNumberPoker) ELSE NULL END, RuleNumberPoker")

Are you having troubles using the CASE statement within the ORDER BY clause?  If so there is an example 3/4 of the way down the page here:
