Conditional CASE statements

Posted on 2009-05-07

I have to write a query to select a addressid based on the different criteria for each row. If the the addressid is at the Purchaseorder then use that. If it is not at the PO then use the one which is at the Quote. But remember one PO can be of multiple Quotes so the addressid of max Quote should go there.  If there is no addressid at PO or Quote then use Customer's default addressid.

Can any one tell me how to implement this in SQL?

Thanks,
-BK

You can join them and then do a COALESCE.
SELECT COALESCE(p.addressid, q.addressid, c.addressid)
FROM PurchaseOrder p
LEFT JOIN (
    SELECT poid
    , addressid
    , row_number() OVER (ORDER BY quoteid DESC) AS ranking
) q ON p.poid = q.poid AND q.ranking = 1
LEFT JOIN Customer c ON p.customerid = c.customerid

Type-o -- you will need the table for quotes...
SELECT COALESCE(p.addressid, q.addressid, c.addressid)
FROM PurchaseOrder p
LEFT JOIN (
    SELECT poid
    , addressid
    , row_number() OVER (ORDER BY quoteid DESC) AS ranking
    FROM Quotes
) q ON p.poid = q.poid AND q.ranking = 1
LEFT JOIN Customer c ON p.customerid = c.customerid

I think a CASE statement is the way to go.  For help on case statements: http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGLS_en-USUS292US303&ie=UTF-8&q=sql+server+case

You need to break down the logic into pieces:

select addressid = CASE
   WHEN (statement that returns true if there is addressid at Purchaseorder )  THEN (select statement that returns addressid at Purchaseorder )
   WHEN (statement that returns true if there is addressid at Quote) THEN (select top 1 addressid at Quote order by  Quote (to get max quote) )
  ELSE (select Customer's default addressid)
END

Hello BrookK,

SELECT AddressID = CASE  WHEN EXISTS (Select 1 from PurchaseOrder p where c.CustomerID = p.CustomerID  ) THEN (Select AddressID from PurchaseOrder p where c.CustomerID = p.CustomerID  )
                         WHEN EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM Quote q where c.CustomerID = q.CustomerID ) THEN (SELECT TOP 1 AddressID FROM Quote where c.CustomerID = q.CustomerID  ORDER BY QuoteID DESC )
                         ELSE  AddressID END
FROM Customer c                        
                         


Regards,

Aneesh

This is an update to a table. I do not know how to write Customer in the CASE and max QuoteID if PO.AddressiD is NULL.
This is my code:
 
UPDATE IC
SET IC.POID = POLI.POID,
	IC.BillToAddressID = 
	CASE WHEN PO.BillingAddressID IS NULL
		 THEN QH.BillCustomerAddressID
	END,
	IC.ShipToAddressID = 
	CASE WHEN PO.ShippingAddressID IS NULL
		 THEN QH.ShipCustomerAddressID
	END
FROM #InvoiceConsolidation IC
LEFT OUTER JOIN POInfo PO
	ON PO.POID = POLI.POID
LEFT OUTER JOIN QuoteHeader QH
	ON QH.QuoteID = IC.QuoteID
LEFT OUTER JOIN Customer C
         ON C.CustomerID = IC.CustomerID
