Hi I have an SQL query and I want to add a coloum to it that shows if an employee is in the building.

At the moment Null is not in
Odd numbers are in and even they are out. Basicaly its how many times they have clocked in that day. This is what I want the table to look like after but at the moment only have the first 2 coloums.

Name          Count         InOrOut
name1             0             Day Off
name2             2                Out
name3             3                  In
name4             1                  In
name5             4                Out

>Null is not in.  Odd numbers are in and even they are out.
Use modulo to get the remainder of a divide by 2, then assign the label appropriately.

SELECT COALESCE(COUNT, 0) % 2 WHEN 0 THEN 'Out' WHEN 1 THEN 'In' END as InOrOut

CASE
  WHEN (column IS NULL) OR ((column % 2) = 0)  THEN 'In'
  ELSE 'Out'
END as InOut

Well, it would help if you showed the query that you have at the moment, but if I understand correctly, you could add the following column:

CASE WHEN COUNT(*) IS NULL THEN 'Out' WHEN COUNT(*) = 0 THEN 'Day Off' WHEN COUNT(*) % 2 = 0 THEN 'Out' ELSE 'In' END As InOrOut

<correction to my above SQL, but it looks like dkrollCTN has it too...>

SELECT CASE COALESCE(COUNT, 0) % 2 WHEN 0 THEN 'Out' WHEN 1 THEN 'In' END as InOrOut

Sorry the coloum has got null in it, and this is the bit that I am stuck on

Name          Count         InOrOut
name1         NULL             Day Off
name2             2                Out
name3             3                  In
name4             1                  In
name5             4                Out
