I have a query that is almost exactly what I need, however I need to add a Column to the end where I have the dummy field of active account to display the account the has '_Sys' from which ever of the OACT (T1, T2, or T3) AcctCode fields that matches that criteria.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

* Only 1 of the fields will ever contain the '_Sys' code.

Best of luck,

(Select T0.AcctCode, T0.AcctName, T0.Levels, T0.GrpLine, T0.FatherNum, T0.GroupMask, 
T1.AcctCode, T1.GroupMask, 
T2.AcctCode, T2.GroupMask,
T3.AcctCode, T3.GroupMask, T3.FormatCode,
'Active Account' as 'Active Account'

from OACT T0 
Left Outer Join OACT T1 on T1.FatherNum = T0.AcctCode
Left Outer Join OACT T2 on T2.FatherNum = T1.AcctCode
Left Outer Join OACT T3 on T3.FatherNum = T2.AcctCode
Where T0.Levels = 1)



Order By T0.GroupMask
