Hello EE,

Lets say I have a query like this:

SELECT a.ID, a.Description,
[answer] = CASE WHEN a.ID=1 THEN 'Something'
    ELSE ( SELECT sum(x.Amount) END

FROM Table1 a
LEFT JOIN Table2 x on x.ID = a.ID
WHERE x.currentYear = 2011


ok my question is...
lets I would like to include a WHERE clause saying  where x.period = 10

is it possible to write that clause inside the Case when on the select? do to it like this:

ELSE ( SELECT sum(x.Amount) where x.Period = 10 )... ?

I  know i could write the clause after my left join but i need to know if there is a way to do like in vb.net some LINQ?

i hope my question is clear...
thanks

I'm trying, I really am. But I've seen so many wrong approaches involving date(time) boundaries I despair about my inability to explain it. I've seen quite a few recently that define a non-leap year as 364 days, or 366 days and the list goes on. …
