Hi all
I am looking for a way to use one single storeprocedure for multiple queries.

Hence I need to switch the where condition based on the table I need to access.
How can I achive this..

FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
			WHERE table_name = @TransactionTabelle			
			IF (@TransactionTabelle = New_Transaction)
			AND COLUMN_NAME IN (
			'Text1',
			'Text2',
			'Text3'
			)
			ELSE
			AND COLUMN_NAME IN 
			(
			'TextA1',
			'TextA2',
			'TextA3'
			)

instead of a if, you have to start using case in the where clause.... you cannot use a if in the where clause....

for the below case you can use a simple or clause to get the stuff done as shown below
FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
			WHERE table_name = @TransactionTabelle			
			AND (
                                 ( (@TransactionTabelle = New_Transaction) 
			           AND COLUMN_NAME IN ('Text1','Text2','Text3')
                                 )
                                 OR
                                 (
                                     COLUMN_NAME IN ('TextA1','TextA2','TextA3')
                                 )
                                )
