question about iff

Hello,

I try select distinct d.LegalName, IIF ( (et.Description = 'VA'), 'YES', 'NO' )  as 'WITHOUT VA', a.* from ##CPTE a

The following error is returned :
Incorrect syntax near '='.

How can I resolve it?

Thanks

SQL Server doesn't do IIF, it does CASE.

SELECT DISTINCT
   d.LegalName,
   CASE WHEN et.Description = 'VA' THEN 'Yes' ELSE 'NO' END as Without_VA,
-- the rest goes here

For more info on CASE blocks there's an article out there on SQL Server CASE Solutions if that helps.
