in my select statement, I am trying to set a value with a CASE, and its saying it doesn't like my expression '>='

It says Incorrect Syntax.

CASE INCREMENT_RANGE WHEN >= '0' THEN '1' END AS TIME_VALUE

If you're doing anything other than = in a case, it all has to go in the WHEN, not between case and when.

ex.

CASE WHEN INCREMENT_RANGE >= '0' THEN '1' END AS TIME_VALUE

Also, you don't want quotes around integer values, unless you have them stored in a varchar field.

You need to add WHEN:
CASE WHEN INCREMENT_RANGE WHEN >= '0' THEN '1' END AS TIME_VALUE
