I keep getting errors on this.  Can someone help me write this statement correctly?  
Basically, if my first result ends in "0", then I want the first letter of the last name, else I want the last number of the Subscriber ID.


CASE substr(O221762."Subscriber_ID",9,1)
     WHEN "0" THEN  substr(O221762."Mbr_Last_Name",1,1) AS "CM_ID"
     ELSE substr(O221762."Subscriber_ID",9,1) AS "CM_ID"
END

 CASE substr(O221762.Subscriber_ID,9,1)
     WHEN '0' THEN  substr(O221762.Mbr_Last_Name,1,1) AS "CM_ID"
     ELSE substr(O221762.Subscriber_ID,9,1) AS "CM_ID"

I figured it out.  I used the following format and added the " " around the field name, which I hadn't done.

CASE
     WHEN substr(O221762."Subscriber_ID",9,1)= 0 THEN  substr(O221762."Mbr_Last_Name",1,1)
     WHEN substr(O221762."Subscriber_ID",9,1)<>0 THEN  substr(O221762."Subscriber_ID",9,1)
END  AS "CM_ID",
