Hello Experts
I am using attached syntax to get the following result

Result
================
Big Cat      15      1      2013      1      Amur leopard
Big Cat      16      1      2013      1      Lion
Big Cat      17      1      2013      1      Asiatic cheetah
Donkey      16      1      2013      2      Loppy
Horse      15      1      2013      2      NULL

There is a German verion of Bigcats which I am trying to show in SideName, when this condition satisfies

CASE Select giftcodeid from AdoptABigCat where isgermanreg = 1

THEN BC.BigCatName AS SideName

ELSE  BC.GermanBigCatName AS SideName

Similary it should check for all other registrations type.

I hope someone can advise how can I go about checking the type and then show appropriate in the same column

Desired Result

Not sure if I understand what you are after but

How about replacing this:
...,	COALESCE (PT.PonyName, DN.DonkeyName, BC.BigCatName) AS SideName
FROM         dbo.GiftCertificateHistory AS GCH INNER JOIN
...

Open in new window


with something like this:
...,
	CASE 
WHEN ABC.isgermanreg = 1 AND GCT.GiftCertificateTypeName = 'Big Cat'
THEN BC.GermanBigCatName 
WHEN ABC.isgermanreg <> 1 AND GCT.GiftCertificateTypeName = 'Big Cat
THEN BC.BigCatName
WHEN ABC.isgermanreg = 1 AND GCT.GiftCertificateTypeName = 'Donkey'
THEN...
...END AS SideName
FROM         dbo.GiftCertificateHistory AS GCH INNER JOIN
