Hey guys
I'm close, I'm using the following code to pull out column and create street names. I am struggling with the part where i need to select the [Suffix_Full] column when [Suffix_Cnty] is not null.
Can someone help?
Thanks

The Suffix_Full Column would read (Alley) instead of the Suffix_Cnty column would have a value of Al. But only Suffix_Cnty is not null.

Not sure I fully understand what your q is.

Maybe something like this?:


SELECT

 LTRIM(RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(str.Prefix_Full, '')))
+       RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(' ' + str.Street_Name, '')))
+       RTRIM(UPPER(COALESCE(' ' + Suffix_Full, ' ' + str.Suffix_Cnty, '')))) AS Name

FROM dbo.Segment seg
INNER JOIN dbo.Street str ON
    seg.Street_ID = str.Street_ID

Try This:
 Select
 LTRIM(RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(CASE WHEN dbo.Street.Suffix_Cnty IS NOT NULL THEN Suffix_Full 
                                 ELSE dbo.Street.Prefix_Full
                          END, ''))) 
+  ' ' +     RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Street_Name, ''))) 
+ ' ' +      RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Suffix_Cnty, '')))) AS Name
	FROM dbo.Segment INNER JOIN    dbo.Street ON dbo.Segment.Street_ID = dbo.Street.Street_ID

The "CASE WHEN Suffix_Cntry IS NOT NULL THEN" will add Suffix_Full ONLY when the condition is true.

What is "Suffix_Bell"?

Hey Scott
Suffix_Bell is the abbrviation of Suffix_Full.  
Suffix_Cnty is also the abbrviation of Suffix_Full.
When Suffix_Bell is populated (Rd(in Suffix_Bell) = Road(in Suffix_Full) Suffix_Cnty will be Null. and Vise Versa.

Suffix_Bell & Suffix_Cnty connot both be populated, its one or the other or niether.

The wierd part of this request is.

When Suffix_Cnty is not null i need to populate the Name field with
Prefix_Full + Street_Name + Suffix_Full (When Suffix_Cnty IS NOT NULL)

When Suffix_Bell is not null i need to populate the Name field with only
Prefix_Full + Street_Name. The Suffix_Bell Column gets put in the Type Field.
Which reading back i think i explained this part wrong to start. Sorry about that
