Oracle CASE Statement

I know that the MDY() function within the SQL will fail … this tells Informix to return the Date value for the values sent.  Also CURRENT will need to be switched out to SYSDATE, but what will the SQL need to look like to correct the CASE statement below?

Name:
Nbr Closed this Qtr
Definition:
CASE WHEN Month(CURRENT) >= 1 AND Month(CURRENT) <= 3
THEN
SUM ( CASE WHEN Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing >= MDY(01,01,Year( CURRENT )-1) AND
Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing <= MDY(03,31,Year( CURRENT )-1)
     THEN 1 ELSE 0 END )
ELSE
SUM ( CASE WHEN Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing >= MDY(01,01,Year( CURRENT )) AND
      Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing <= MDY(03,31,Year( CURRENT ))
           THEN 1 ELSE 0 END )
END


TIA,

This is posted in an Oracle zone.  Is this Oracle or Informix?

something like this, off the top of my head ...
CASE WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'MM')) >= 1 AND TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE, 'MM')) <= 3
THEN SUM ( CASE WHEN Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing >= TRUNC (TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'YYYY')-1 , 'YYYY') 
                                 AND Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing < ADD_MONTHS(3, TRUNC (TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'YYYY')-1 , 'YYYY'))
                       THEN 1 ELSE 0 END )
ELSE
SUM ( CASE WHEN Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing >= TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'YYYY')  
                         AND Sfhd_Loan_Activity.Date_Of_Closing <= ADD_MONTHS(3,  TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'YYYY'))
           THEN 1 ELSE 0 END )
END

try this...

CASE
           WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE, 'q')) = 1
           THEN
               SUM(
                   CASE
                       WHEN sfhd_loan_activity.date_of_closing >=
                                ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'yyyy'), -12)
                            AND sfhd_loan_activity.date_of_closing <=
                                    ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'yyyy'), -9) - 1
                       THEN
                           1
                       ELSE
                           0
                   END)
           ELSE
               SUM(
                   CASE
                       WHEN sfhd_loan_activity.date_of_closing >= TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'yyyy')
                            AND sfhd_loan_activity.date_of_closing <=
                                    ADD_MONTHS(TRUNC(SYSDATE, 'yyyy'), 3) - 1
                       THEN
                           1
                       ELSE
                           0

angeliii - your add_months parameters are backwards

also,  the end date is 3/31  so after adjusting by 3 months you to 4/1 you need to subtract 1

you are surely correct about the add_months parameters ...
but :
<= MDY(03,31,Year( CURRENT )-1)
means to me the same as
< 1/4/ ....
or am I wrong there?

MDY(03,31,Year( CURRENT )-1)


is equivalent to

to_date('03/31/' || to_char(sysdate,'yyyy')-1,'mm/dd/yyyy')

so

3/31/2010

should be correct

try it with your table and see, we can't test it, we don't have your data

When there is more data on the Oracle Instance I will try it and compare to Informix.  As of now it works for 1 qtr. Thanks for your help.
