sql server 2008 query

I'm using Sql server 2008.
This example uses the Employees table from the Northwind database.
I have a asp.net page where I have a RadioButtonList.

The RadioButtonList has 3 possible selections.

One is called Query 1 which will have a value of 1
the other is called Query 2 which will have a value of 2
and the other is called Query 3 which will have a value of 3



How would I write a query to handle the following:

If the Query 1 radio button is selected run this query

SELECT [EmployeeID],[LastName],[FirstName],[Title],[TitleOfCourtesy],[BirthDate],[HireDate],[Address],[City],[PostalCode],[Country],[HomePhone]
FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees] WHERE [EmployeeID] < 4
 

If the Query 2  radio button is selected run this query

SELECT [EmployeeID],[LastName],[FirstName],[Title],[TitleOfCourtesy],[BirthDate],[HireDate],[Address],[City],[PostalCode],[Country],[HomePhone]
FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees] WHERE [EmployeeID] > 4


If the Query 3  radio button is selected run this query

SELECT [EmployeeID],[LastName],[FirstName],[Title],[TitleOfCourtesy],[BirthDate],[HireDate],[Address],[City],[PostalCode],[Country],[HomePhone]
FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees] WHERE [EmployeeID] = 6

Can I just use a case statement?

This query is going to go inside a stored procedure that I am just going to pass in the parameter selected from the radion button to the stored procedure.

So the stored procedure will only run one of these queries depending on what parameter I passed it.
So if I passed it a value of 1 then query 1 should run
     if I passed it a value of 2 then query 2 should run
     if I passed it a value of 3 then query 3 should run

Any ideas?

Thanks.

The following should do that I think, I've written for testing, you just change the var to be the SP parameter.

declare @InputValue int

set @InputValue = 1

SELECT [EmployeeID],[LastName],[FirstName],[Title],[TitleOfCourtesy],[BirthDate],[HireDate],[Address],[City],[PostalCode],[Country],[HomePhone]
FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Employees]
WHERE (@InputValue = 1 and [EmployeeID] < 4)
or (@InputValue = 2 and [EmployeeID] > 4)
or (@InputValue = 3 and [EmployeeID] = 6)
