I need to use an IF / ELSE IF in SQL.  Below is my example I am trying to accomplish

Select ID,  F1,
    IF CONTAINS( F2, 'Check')
        BEGIN
            Replace(F2, 'Check', '')
        END
    ELSE IF CONTAINS( F2, 'Ck')
        BEGIN
            Replace(F2, 'Ck', '')
        END
    END IF AS MyField

use this

Select ID,  F1,
    case 
		when F2 LIKE '%Check%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Check', '')
		when F2 LIKE '%Ck%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Ck', '')
		else
			F2
    END AS MyField

Either one of these will give you what you're looking for:

SELECT ID, F1,
      CASE WHEN F2 = 'Check' THEN REPLACE(F2,'Check','')
            WHEN F2 = 'Ck' THEN REPLACE(F2,'Ck','')
                                ELSE F2
      END AS MyField
      
SELECT ID, F1,
      REPLACE(REPLACE(F2,'Check',''),'Ck','') AS MyField

Ok, it works but having one problem.  F2 can contain 'Ck#' and can't seem to delete the #.

Select ID,  F1,
    case 
		when F2 LIKE '%Check%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Check', '')
		when F2 LIKE '%Ck%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Ck', '')
		when F2 LIKE '%Ck#%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Ck#', '')
		else
			F2
    END AS MyField

Put Ck# before Ck

Select ID,  F1,
    case 
		when F2 LIKE '%Check%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Check', '')
		when F2 LIKE '%Ck#%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Ck#', '')
		when F2 LIKE '%Ck%' then
			Replace(F2, 'Ck', '')
		else
			F2
    END AS MyField
