How do I in where clause to select correct data in the following statement:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
select name, date1, date2, date3
from table
where name=@Param and
 case
    when @Param ="a",   date1 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param="b", date2 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param ="c", date3 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    else 0
end =1

I only get 2 row. I should have 125.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
select name, date1, date2, date3
from table
where name=@Param and
 ( date1 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012' or    
   date2 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  or
   date3 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012' )

Obviously,   '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  won't limited all dates because of  "or "

Appreciate for great  help!

Have you tried this:
WHERE   name = @Param
        AND CASE WHEN @Param = "a"
                      AND date1 BETWEEN '2/1/2012' AND '2/29/2012' THEN 1
                 WHEN @Param = "b"
                      AND date2 BETWEEN '2/1/2012' AND '2/29/2012' THEN 1
                 WHEN @Param = "c"
                      AND date3 BETWEEN '2/1/2012' AND '2/29/2012' THEN 1
                 ELSE 0
            END = 1

Is this what you want to achieve?


select name, date1, date2, date3
from table_name
where name=@Param OR
 case
    when @Param ='a' and date1 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param='b' and date2 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param ='c' and date3 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    else 0
end =1

Or:
WHERE   name = @Param AND (
        @Param = 'a' AND date1 BETWEEN '20120201' AND '20120229' OR
        @Param = 'b' AND date2 BETWEEN '20120201' AND '20120229' OR
        @Param = 'c' AND date2 BETWEEN '20120201' AND '20120229')

In case date1 and date2 are datetime, or converted to datetime, I suggest this style for checking dates instead:

WHERE   name = @Param AND (
        (@Param = 'a' AND date1 >= '20120201' AND date1 < '20120301') OR
        (@Param = 'b' AND date2 >= '20120201' AND date2 < '20120301') OR
        (@Param = 'c' AND date2 >= '20120201' AND date2 < '20120301') )

Technically I don't think you need the extra parens, but in my view it makes it clearer to the reader.

Thank you all. I found the reason I only got 2 rows instead of 125. There is another condition that need included NULL value. So the where clause should be:

where name=@Param and (division in (@div) or division is null)
and
 case
    when @Param ='a' and date1 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param='b' and date2 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    when @Param ='c' and date3 between '2/1/2012' and '2/29/2012'  THEN 1
    else 0
end =1
