Hi Experts

I need to create a SQL Select that will pull all the fields as per the code below and have an additional field based on the field Pay or Receive.

If field is Pay new field says 'Pay by Position'
If field says receive, new field says pay by customer

can you please help

select p.PORTFOLIOMNEMONIC, td.TRADEDIRECTION, cf.CUSTOMERID, cf.CUSTOMERMNEMONIC, TP.TRADECCY1AMOUNT
from CUSTOMERFAMILY cf 
left join CUSTOMER c on c.CUSTOMERID = cf.CUSTOMERID 
left join PORTFOLIO p on p.VERIFICATIONCODE = c.VERIFICATIONCODE
left join TRADEDETAIL td on td.CUSTOMERID = c.CUSTOMERID
left join TRADEPOSITION tp on td.TRADEDIRECTION = tp.TRADEDIRECTION 
where 
--p.PORTFOLIOMNEMONIC in( 'MAIN') and 
cf.CUSTOMERID like '%IFE%' and
td.tradedirection in( 'PAY', 'RECEIVE')
