SQL - Filtered on QTY field only in a View

New to using SQL - I created a view and need to add a field for the Quantity Field, I need this field to exclude one product line in my table.  However, I need the Product Line on the entire table but just filtered for the quantity field. Is there a way to do this?  

For example - My QTY field includes Freight.  My $$ fields need to include the Freight $$'s so I can't eliminate the Freight from the entire table I just don't want the QTY field to include the Freight numbers, as it doubles the Qty Amount.  

In Crystal - I would create a formula as:

If {ProductLine} = "FRGT" then 0 else {Qty}

Any help would be great!  Trying to not do this report in Crystal.  

Thank you.

Hi Mlmcc:

Where in SQL do you excute a Case Statement? Is it part of the SQL statement?

Thanks.

It is part of the SELECT

SELECT fields, CASE .... , fields
FROM ....

I don't have a SQL database here so the syntax is from memory.
