Clueless about the right syntax. (GETDATE)

Question: I would like to use GETDATE() in combination with IF THEN.

SELECT datepart(mm,getdate()) WHEN 1 print ''yada yada yada" ELSE print "yoda yoda yoda"

Since I'm a noob with SQL I can't seem to get the notation right.
I have searched myself silly on the web for the answer but with no luck.
Could someone tell me what the correct notation should be?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Clyde.

check out this:

SELECT CASE datepart(mm,getdate()) WHEN 1 THEN 'yada yada yada' ELSE 'yoda yoda yoda' END

Open in new window


resp:

declare @res varchar(100) 
SELECT CASE datepart(mm,getdate()) WHEN 1 THEN 'yada yada yada' ELSE 'yoda yoda yoda' END
print @res

Open in new window
