sql case


I have the sql case statement below that works fine, however if the cn.disableReason is null then I want to return 'In-Active'

CASE candidateactive WHEN 1 THEN 'Active'  WHEN 0 THEN cn.disableReason  END  AS Status

Greatful for any help.

Problem is if there is a null value in cn.diablereason then it overwrites 'in-active' with Null

I see
CASE WHEN candidateactive  IS NULL THEN 'In-Active' WHEN candidateactive  = 1 THEN 'Active'  WHEN candidateactive  = 0 THEN ISNULL( cn.disableReason, 'In-Active')  END  AS Status
