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
			WHERE table_name = @TransactionTabelle			
			AND (
                                 ( (@TransactionTabelle = New_Transaction) 
			           AND COLUMN_NAME IN ('Text1','Text2','Text3')
                                     COLUMN_NAME IN ('TextA1','TextA2','TextA3')
