Hello,

I want to pass parameters as number  1   or 2  to 3
to update or select certain field in a table with fields names f1, f2,f3

so that when the value is 2 I want my select statement to be equal to
select f2 from mytable

Best Regards

Zaki

this could do:
select case @parameter WHEN 1 then f1 WHEN 2 THEN f2 WHEN 3 THEN f3 END as field from mytable 

however, the data types must be equivalent (or be made equivalent with CONVERT() .. )

declare @parameter as int
set @parameter = 2
select 
    case @parameter 
               WHEN 1 then col1
               WHEN 2 THEN col2
               WHEN 3 THEN col3
    END as field 
from 
    table
