I'm trying to use a CASE statement in my SQL View.

I keep getting the following error; can't figure out what is wrong with my code.

Error message: Incorrect Syntax near ''.
SELECT     

CASE WHEN Right(Email, 5) = ‘a.com’

THEN

LEFT(Email, LEN(Email) - 21) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 20, 1)) + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 19, 6) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, 
                      LEN(Email) - 13, 1)) + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 12, 6) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 6, 1)) + RIGHT(Email, 6) 

ELSE 

LEFT(Email, LEN(Email) - 11) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 10, 1))  + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 9, 2) 
 + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 7, 1))  + Right(Email,7)

AS Email

FROM         dbo.AD_List

I think you mean:
Incorrect syntax near '‘'.

Try this:


SELECT    

CASE Email WHEN Right(Email, 5) = ‘a.com’

THEN

LEFT(Email, LEN(Email) - 21) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 20, 1)) + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 19, 6) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email,
                      LEN(Email) - 13, 1)) + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 12, 6) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 6, 1)) + RIGHT(Email, 6)

ELSE

LEFT(Email, LEN(Email) - 11) + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 10, 1))  + SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 9, 2)
 + UPPER(SUBSTRING(Email, LEN(Email) - 7, 1))  + Right(Email,7)

AS Email

FROM         dbo.AD_List

agarwalrahul,, didn't work.  Incorrect syntax near '='.
