Linq query mods. at run time

I have a query below, note the where clause in bold. In some cases I don't want to include the where clause (omit it)  and other cases I do. Is there a way to code it in such a way so that in some cases it looks like the query beneath this one, without repeating the query?

ie.. if (ShowOneTeamOnly) .. then show with 'where', if not, then no 'where' to be used, but embed the logic inside the query.  Thanks

var ANames = (from g in AllData
                              where c.dbTeam.Trim() == sTeam.Trim() &&  c.dbGrp == sGrp
                              group g by new
                              {
                                  g.dbName
                              } into g
                              select new
                              {
                                  Agentname = g.Key.dbName

                              }).ToList();


sometimes I want it to look as this, without the where..

var ANames = (from g in AllData
                              group g by new
                              {
                                  g.dbName
                              } into g
                              select new
                              {
                                  Agentname = g.Key.dbName

                              }).ToList();

You could include the condition in the where:
var ANames = (from g in AllData
            where !ShowOneTeamOnly || (c.dbTeam.Trim() == sTeam.Trim() &&  c.dbGrp == sGrp)
            group g by new {g.dbName} into g
            select new {Agentname = g.Key.dbName}).ToList();

Open in new window

I would assume this to be optimised well by LINQ / SQL.

That is taken into account in the above. If ShowOneTeamOnly is false it ignores the rest of the where.
