Hi Experts,

Ok to keep it simple lets assume I have 2 columns:
QTY
TRANSTYPE

Im creating a view so bare in mind this is part of my SELECT clause. I need...

IF (QTY <> 0 AND TRANSTYPE='ADJ' then QTY = QTY * -1)

I dont think I can do this in a CASE statement?

Thanks,
Dean.

Will these adjust the existing QTY column? I dont want to add a new column, I want to overwrite the existing one.

BuggyCoder,

This is my code so far, how do I add yours? I cannot have 2 SELECT statements in a view, surely?....

Something's not right, because it explicilty labeled the column as "QTY".

Maybe you have to use a different name than one that already exists on the table??

You also don't need to check for QTY <> 0, since 0 * -1 will still be zero.
