I am using a paramter to query the table. ProjectTable(id,status,team).

Select * From projectable where team in (@team)

OK this is fine but I also would to include null and blanket value when I select all teams from the parameters.

How can I do that?

If you only want to include null and blank values when you select all, then there's a couple of steps to it. The suggestion above will include NULL values when any query is returned.

In your query that provides the paramater values, do a union to add in the first row like below:

SELECT id=999, Status='', team = 'SELECT ALL'
UNION
SELECT id, status, team FROM projectable

This will add one more value to your list that will bring back everything if selected. Otherwise, you'll only get what you selected without the Nulls and blanks.

Select id, active, team
From projectable
where id in (@team)
     or @team = 'SELECT ALL'

Dear dkim18

check the code below,
SELECT * FROM projectable  where team in (@pteam) or (@pteam is null and team is null)
