SQL Case question

Hi

I have an sql query with a few parameters. If one of these parameters is 0 I want to use a different where clause.


I'd to this like this

If @Param = 0
  Begin
    --SQL here with where clause
  End

Else

  Begin
    --SQL here with another where clause
  End

My question is this, can this be done in a single SQL statement with say a CASE When in the where clause?
