Hey guys,

I am trying to return a preset text result if a specific condition is met. Example:

select POSHEADER.transact, POSHEADER.snum, POSHEADER.statnum, whoclose, timeend, POSHEADER.finaltotal, POSHEADER.status, METHODPAY.descript……

I don’t want it to actually select the POSHEADER.finaltotal value, but rather return a result of “Sale” if finaltotal is > 0 and a result of “Return” if finaltotal is < or = 0. Also the returned value needs to be in column 6.
