Referencing Variable Selected Fields in Where Clause

cnxmax asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm trying to get a variable field name created with "AS" in the select clause to work in the Where clause.

Is this possible? Is there another solution?

This code works without the Var_Priorty <= 2
SELECT page_ID, page_title, 
WHEN page_tag = 'howdy' THEN 1 
WHEN page_tag = 'doo' THEN 2 
ELSE 99 END As Var_Priority
FROM table_pages
WHERE page_ID > 100
AND Var_Priority <= 2
