I am trying to use the derived value in the Select Statement Where condition as shown below :



Select  field a, field b,
  GetSomelList(tableA.field z) as Lista,   /* Where GetSomeList is a function
field c
from  tableA 
where  some condition AND  Lista <> ','
 
I get the error Lista is not a "table column' as expected because it is dervied 
 value and not a table column.
 
I can do this
 
Select  field a, field b,
  GetSomelList(tableA.field z) as Lista,  /* Where GetSomeList is a function
field c
from  tableA 
where  some condition AND  GetSomelList(tableA.field z)  <> ','
 
Is there a better way of do this  instead of calling the same function twice in the select statement.
