This is SQL 2000

I have a function and below works. But now I want to put it in a case statement. I get an error that there's a syntax error near THEN..

--This works
if  dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate('2011-02-18 15:45:00.000','FX','UPSGND','HI'))) <= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate()))
   
Begin

 print 'y'

End
else
begin
 print 'n'
end
---How can i use it in CASE

SELECT MIN(sm.Description1) AS Item, o.order_id,
	       od.sku AS SKU,
	       SUM(original_qty) AS Need,
	       MAX(
	           CASE 
	                WHEN o.Carrier IN ('UPSNDS', 'UPSNDA') THEN 
	                     'Y'
	                ELSE 'N'
	           END
	       ) AS AIR,
	       MAX(CASE WHEN o.Carrier = 'USPSPRI' THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END) AS 
	       USPS,
           ---**** here    
           case when ( dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate(o.PO_Date,'FX','UPSGND','HI')))
                              <= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate())) THEN 'Y' else 'N' end) as Test,

	       MAX(CASE WHEN o.PO_Date <= @CUTOFF THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END) AS Today,
	       MAX(rq.Wave) AS Wave

	FROM .....

You're doing this:

CASE WHEN (conditions THEN true ELSE false)
You need to do this:

CASE WHEN (conditions) THEN true ELSE false

So, this should work:
case when (dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate(o.PO_Date,'FX','UPSGND','HI')))
                              <= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate()))) THEN 'Y' else 'N' end as Test

That is, assuming your conditions are correctly stated.

If you put the first "CASE" all on one line, does it work?

MAX(CASE WHEN o.Carrier IN ('UPSNDS', 'UPSNDA') THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END) AS AIR,

can you try this:-

  case when ( dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate(o.PO_Date,'FX','UPSGND','HI')))
                              <= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate()))  )THEN 'Y' else 'N' end as Test

I'm not sure what you're trying to say doesn't work. If it's the MAX(CASE) functions, then there's no reason not to work. Basically, if all records contain 'N' it will return 'N', otherwise it will return 'Y' (even if there's only one 'Y').

Actually, this worked (i removed the paranthsis before "dateadd")

OLD: I removed that paranthiss
case when ( dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate(o.PO_Date,'FX','UPSGND','HI')))
                              <= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate())) THEN 'Y' else 'N' end) as Test,

change to

SELECT MIN(sm.Description1) AS Item, o.order_id,
	       od.sku AS SKU,
	       SUM(original_qty) AS Need,
	       MAX(
	           CASE 
	                WHEN o.Carrier IN ('UPSNDS', 'UPSNDA') THEN 
	                     'Y'
	                ELSE 'N'
	           END
	       ) AS AIR,
	       MAX(CASE WHEN o.Carrier = 'USPSPRI' THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END) AS 
	       USPS,
           ---**** here 
when dateadd(dd,0,datediff(dd,0,dbo.fnExpectedShipDate(o.PO_Date,'FX','UPSGND','HI')))<= DATEADD(dd, 0, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, getdate())) then 'Y' else 'N' end,
MAX(CASE WHEN o.PO_Date <= @CUTOFF THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END) AS Today,
