how return 0 is value is null

I have the following which works fine. However if the following sub query returns null then my results are incorrect. How can i ensure the "Sum" keyword return 0 is there are no results.
(select Sum(oi.Quantity)
             from   OrderItems oi
                    inner join Orders o
                      on oi.OrderId = o.Id
             where  oi.OrderItemStatusId < 2
                    and o.OrderStatus = 3
                    and oi.ProductId = p.Id)

Here is the full query
 
(select Sum(oi.Quantity) as available from
 OrderItems oi inner join Orders o on oi.OrderId = o.Id where (oi.OrderItemStatusId = 0 or oi.OrderItemStatusId = 1)  and oi.ProductId = 80493)
 
 
 SELECT p.Id                                   as Id,
       p.Name,
       CustomerSku,

                      on oi.OrderId = o.Id
             where  oi.OrderItemStatusId < 2
                    and o.OrderStatus = 3
                    and oi.ProductId = p.Id)) as ProjectedStock

replace in the Sum(oi.Quantity)
into 1 of the folowing


Sum(case when oi.Quantity is null then 0 else oi.Quantity end )  
Or
Sum(ISNULL (  oi.Quantity ,0))

They do the same

The reason why I change the check inside the SUM


4 + 5 + Null = null
4 + 5 + 0 = 9

You can check like this.....

 set @seta=((select Sum(oi.Quantity)
             from   OrderItems oi
                    inner join Orders o
                      on oi.OrderId = o.Id
             where  oi.OrderItemStatusId < 2
                    and o.OrderStatus = 3
                    and oi.ProductId = p.Id)
 );
select @seta;
if @seta >0
return @seta
else
return 0;
.....you can perform the desired operations in the if and else statements...
Let me know if you want any further help...

poor_beggar,

The only case when a sum can result in NULL is when there are no records to sum up:
    select sum(a) from (select 1 as a union all select 2 union all  select null ) a
will result in 3
 
   select sum(a) from (select 1 as a from syscolumns where 1=0) a
will result in NULL
0

Check using NVL() function.

(select nvl(Sum(oi.Quantity),0) as available from
 OrderItems oi inner join Orders o on oi.OrderId = o.Id where (oi.OrderItemStatusId = 0 or oi.OrderItemStatusId = 1)  and oi.ProductId = 80493)


Following is the updated full query.

SELECT p.Id                                   as Id,
       p.Name,
       CustomerSku,
       p.ProductKey,
       p.MinQuantity,
       p.MaxQuantity,
       p.Stock,
       p.IsStockItem,
       p.ShowStockPrice,
       ImageThumbUrl,
       p.Teaser,
       p.Description,
       (p.Stock
          - (select nvl(Sum(oi.Quantity),0)  
           from   OrderItems oi
                    inner join Orders o
                      on oi.OrderId = o.Id
             where  oi.OrderItemStatusId < 2
                    and o.OrderStatus = 3
                    and oi.ProductId = p.Id)) as ProjectedStock
FROM   ProductCategories pc
       inner join Products p
         on pc.ProductId = p.Id
WHERE  pc.CompanyId = 27
       and pc.CategoryId = 138
       and p.Archive = 0
       and p.Disable = 0
       and p.AutoDisable = 0
       and EXISTS (select *
                   from   RetailerInGroup rig
                   where  (rig.RetailerGroupId = p.RetailerGroupId
                           and rig.RetailerId = 13)
                           or p.RetailerGroupId is Null)

amit_n_panchal,

NVL is Oracle, we are talking 'bout MSSQL here.

BTW, such a subselect in the columns part usually performs bad. It is much better to use a derived table here (you could also do with CTEs if MSSQL 2005 or above):
SELECT p.Id                                   as Id,
       p.Name,
       CustomerSku,
       p.ProductKey,
       p.MinQuantity,
       p.MaxQuantity,
       p.Stock,
       p.IsStockItem,
       p.ShowStockPrice,
       ImageThumbUrl,
       p.Teaser,
       p.Description,
       (p.Stock - isnull(ordered.quantity,0)) as ProjectedStock
FROM   ProductCategories pc
join Products p
         on pc.ProductId = p.Id
left join (select oi.ProductId, Sum(oi.Quantity) as quantity
             from   OrderItems oi
             join Orders o
               on oi.OrderId = o.Id
             where  oi.OrderItemStatusId < 2 and o.OrderStatus = 3) ordered
         on ordered.ProductId = p.Id
WHERE  pc.CompanyId = 27
       and pc.CategoryId = 138
       and p.Archive = 0
       and p.Disable = 0
       and p.AutoDisable = 0
       and EXISTS (select *
                   from   RetailerInGroup rig
                   where  (rig.RetailerGroupId = p.RetailerGroupId
                           and rig.RetailerId = 13)
                           or p.RetailerGroupId is Null)
