I have the following Case Statement:

Case When PCYTD_1.PC_YTD - PCB_1.PC_Base >=  dbo.tblPIF_Size.Goal_PC Then  Dense_Rank() Over (partition by PCB_1.Terr Order By PCYTD_1.PC_YTD - PCB_1.PC_Base desc)     Else 0 End as Rank      

It states that When a total ( PCYTD_1.PC_YTD - PCB_1.PC_Base) is >= to a Goal then Rank that result. Otherwise (Else) show 0.

HOWEVER I do NOT want the 0 I want the 0 to be 'NOT MET'

My problem is that I have a data type issue as the first parts are int and my else would be char. I tried to Cast, but no luck.

Can someone asssit. Thank you.
