Sql Statement

I need some help with creating a sql statement that can be used with html page.  I need to pull data from a field within table and show the results as either yes or no
I have two types - one is a date field and the other is either 1 or 0.  The one giving me a problem is the date - the default for the field is 1/1/1900 so I need to show any with this date as no and any with a date other than this as YES.  I hope has enough information for someone to help me if not please let me know.  I have tried this basic statement and customizing for my data and using a date but keep getting errors.

Select Case When IsNull(FieldName, 0) = 1 Then 'Yes' Else 'No' End As FieldName From TableName

if the field is date data type, then the issue is with the 0 as default value...

this is the way I would start coding:
Select Case When FieldName IS NULL then 'No'
   when FieldName <= convert(datetime, '1900-01-01', 120) then 'No' else 'True' End As FieldName 
From TableName  

Open in new window

Assuming the field will never be null (since you said you have a default value) it would just be this:

SELECT CASE WHEN [theDateField]= '1900-01-01' THEN 'No' ELSE 'Yes' END AS YesOrNo
FROM [TableName]

Otherwise if it is null, add in another when/where statement for the null value.

Thank you all for answers - sometimes simple is the way to go - I was making it more difficult than needed.
