Case Statements

Hi,

I have this Case Statement, below, and I want it to return a specific numeric value.  Any thoughts?

thank.

case when d.product in ('DEBT', 'DISCOUNT', 'FRA', 'VARIANCE') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1' then 'Buy'
when d.product in ('DEBT', 'DISCOUNT', 'FRA', 'VARIANCE') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2' then 'Sell'  
when d.product in ('EQUITYSWAP', 'CREDITDEFAULT') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1' then 'Recieve'--dsr.currentrate
when d.product in ('EQUITYSWAP', 'CREDITDEFAULT') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2' then 'Pay'--dsp.currentrate  
when dsp.side = 'R' then 'Recieve'-- dsr.currentrate  
when dsp.side = 'P' then  'Pay' --dsp.currentrate  
when d.product in ('CAP','EUITYOPTION') then 'Pay' else 'Option' end

dsp.currentrate  [pay rate]

here is numeric values :)

case 
when d.product in ('DEBT', 'DISCOUNT', 'FRA', 'VARIANCE') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1' then 1
when d.product in ('DEBT', 'DISCOUNT', 'FRA', 'VARIANCE') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2' then 2
when d.product in ('EQUITYSWAP', 'CREDITDEFAULT') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1' then 3
when d.product in ('EQUITYSWAP', 'CREDITDEFAULT') and dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2' then 4
when dsp.side = 'R' then 3
when dsp.side = 'P' then  4
when d.product in ('CAP','EUITYOPTION') then 4
else 0
end

Why don't you use a pre-defined table containing the values of the fields you want to match
and JOIN it to your table ?

If you wanted it to return a numeric value then i would expect to see a numeric expression after the 'then' specifying how the returned numeric value should be computed.  but perhaps I am misunderstanding and you need to provide additional information as to what your requirements are..

The equivalent to a case in SSRS is the SWITCH.. Is that what you wanted?

=SWITCH (  Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 1,
           Fields!d.product='DISCOUNT'  AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 1,
           Fields!d.product='FRA'       AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 1,
           Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 1,
           Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 1,
           Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 2,
           Fields!d.product='DISCOUNT'  AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 2,
           Fields!d.product='FRA'       AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 2,
           Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 2,
           Fields!d.product='DEBT'      AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 2,
           Fields!d.product='EQUITYSWAP'    AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 3,
           Fields!d.product='CREDITDEFAULT' AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 4,
           Fields!d.product='EQUITYSWAP'    AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '1', 3,
           Fields!d.product='CREDITDEFAULT' AND dspr.IsBuyOrSell = '2', 4,
           True, 0)

oops missing equivalents for

when dsp.side = 'R' then 3
when dsp.side = 'P' then  4
when d.product in ('CAP','EUITYOPTION') then 4


but I think you get the idea...  And setting up a table and doing a join is looking really really good to me... lol

@SJCFL-Admin: really happy you appreciated it (joining with the table)
In this way changes to logic can be easily managed

fundsf,

Did any of the suggestions help?  Or did you decide on an alternate solution?  It has been a while and I am curious to know how this was finally resolved....
