Hi Experts,
I am trying to understand the following code which is there in the function and this function is called from SP.  


        SELECT @sqlWDay = CASE @DOWeek
        WHEN 'Su' THEN 1
        WHEN 'Mo' THEN 2
        WHEN 'Tu' THEN 3
        WHEN 'We' THEN 4
        WHEN 'Th' THEN 5
        WHEN 'Fr' THEN 6
        WHEN 'Sa' THEN 7

I have a String field in the table called DOWeek, whose possible value are

  1. Blank
  2. 'MoTuWeThFr'
  3. 'MoWeTh'
  4. 'Th'
  5. 'FrTh'
  6. 'Fr'
etc. etc.

The above function is called from the SP with DOWeek as parameter.  But, I don't know what would be the possible value of @SqlWDay.  In other words, I don't understand how the (code), or the value of @DOWeek would be translated to @sqlWDay.  Please try to help me.  Thank you a lot in advance.
