in the select statement below I set up a field AS VolumeDiscount. I would like to use VolumeDiscount in the same select statement right after. How would I do this?

SELECT     cod.OrderDetailsID, cod.OrderID, cod.DeliveryDateRequest, cod.GrowthStageID, cod.StandingOrder, cod.Comments, cod.Quantity, cod.ClientSpecialDiscount, 
                      cod.ResellerSpecialDiscount, cod.ProductID, 
                      CASE cod.GrowthStageID WHEN 3 THEN p.ProductPrice - 2 WHEN 2 THEN p.ProductPrice - 1 ELSE p.ProductPrice END AS ProductPrice
,CASE WHEN cod.Quantity < 5 THEN 0 WHEN cod.Quantity < 10 THEN 0.05 ELSE 0.1 END AS VolumeDiscount
,(p.ProductPrice-p.ProductPrice*VolumeDiscount)-((p.ProductPrice-p.ProductPrice*VolumeDiscount)*po.PaymentDiscount) AS UnitPrice
FROM         WW.ClientOrderDetails AS cod INNER JOIN
                      WW.Products AS p ON cod.ProductID = p.ProductID INNER JOIN
                      WW.TaxCategories AS tc ON p.TaxCategoryID = tc.TaxCategoryID INNER JOIN
                      WW.ClientOrders AS co ON cod.OrderID = co.OrderID INNER JOIN
                      WW.PaymentOptions AS po ON co.PaymentOptionID = po.PaymentOptionID
WHERE     (cod.OrderID = 401001)

Unfortunately, you'll have to duplicate your CASE statement.

You cannot use it with your current query, you need some thing like this
SELECT * ,(p.ProductPrice-p.ProductPrice*VolumeDiscount)-((p.ProductPrice-p.ProductPrice*VolumeDiscount)*po.PaymentDiscount) AS UnitPrice

FROM (
SELECT     cod.OrderDetailsID, cod.OrderID, cod.DeliveryDateRequest, cod.GrowthStageID, cod.StandingOrder, cod.Comments, cod.Quantity, cod.ClientSpecialDiscount,
                      cod.ResellerSpecialDiscount, cod.ProductID,
                      CASE cod.GrowthStageID WHEN 3 THEN p.ProductPrice - 2 WHEN 2 THEN p.ProductPrice - 1 ELSE p.ProductPrice END AS ProductPrice
,CASE WHEN cod.Quantity < 5 THEN 0 WHEN cod.Quantity < 10 THEN 0.05 ELSE 0.1 END AS VolumeDiscount
FROM         WW.ClientOrderDetails AS cod INNER JOIN
                      WW.Products AS p ON cod.ProductID = p.ProductID INNER JOIN
                      WW.TaxCategories AS tc ON p.TaxCategoryID = tc.TaxCategoryID INNER JOIN
                      WW.ClientOrders AS co ON cod.OrderID = co.OrderID INNER JOIN
                      WW.PaymentOptions AS po ON co.PaymentOptionID = po.PaymentOptionID
WHERE     (cod.OrderID = 401001)
)A

You can also define the inner select as a CTE, or a view, or like above, it remains the same. Only by using some intermediate table you can reuse results of expressions.

looks good but I'm getting the following error:
The multi-part identifier "p.ProductPrice" could not be bound.

Remove the p.'s from the first select column list.

Or change the alias A to p

WHERE     (cod.OrderID = 401001)
)A
 ------------------>
WHERE     (cod.OrderID = 401001)
)P

also remove the 'PO.'
