declare @test int


select @test = case when @var between 100 and 199 then 1
                                 when @var between 600 and 699 then 1
                                 when @var between 900 and 999 then 1
                                 else 0 end

if @test = 1
begin
  -- query
end

ok you can add the between clause to the where clause of the query

select * 
from <your Table>
where <your cond>
AND @VAR BETWEEN <Start> and <end>

The below is easier to read...
SELECT blah, blah, blah
FROM YourTable
WHERE 
   @variable between 100 AND 199 OR
   @variable between 600 AND 699 OR
   @variable between 900 AND 999

Open in new window

... although Kyle's code is preferred, as if the @variable does not fall in these ranges then the query will not be performed, saving that unneeded execution time.
