See my code below.. I want the code to put the field sComment to stated below if the berrorflag is 0 otherwise I want the sComment to have something else.. The second "case" keword is highlighted and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong
CASE 
	WHEN  css.bErrFlag =0
     CASE (css.sDeliveryMethod)
	  WHEN 'fax'    THEN 'Web customer requests the listed invoice number: ' + (css.sTransactionNo) + ' to be sent via: ' 
		    + (css.sDeliveryMethod) + ' to ' + COALESCE(css.sPhone_Fax, '') 
	  WHEN 'email'  THEN 'Web customer requests the listed invoice number: ' +  (css.sTransactionNo) + ' to be sent via: ' 
		    + (css.sDeliveryMethod) + ' to ' + COALESCE(css.semail, '') 
	  WHEN 'e-mail' THEN 'Web customer requests the listed invoice number: ' + (css.sTransactionNo) + ' to be sent via: ' 
		    + (css.sDeliveryMethod) + ' to ' + COALESCE(css.semail, '') 
	  WHEN 'mail'   THEN 'Web customer requests the listed invoice number:  ' +  (css.sTransactionNo) + ' to be sent via: ' 
		    + (css.sDeliveryMethod) + ' to ' + COALESCE(css.saddress1, '') + '; ' + COALESCE(css.sAddress2, '') 
		    + '; ' + COALESCE(css.scity, '') + ', ' + COALESCE(css.sstate, '') + '  ' + COALESCE((right(css.szip,5)), '') 
     ELSE 'Customer requested invoices be sent and did not choose a delivery method. '
     END 
  ELSE 'Error in case:'+(css.sErrMsg)
