I have a code in oracle and it works fine to get sum of TOTAL_CHRG  when dc = 1,4,6 as bonus_value

I would want to get the same results in VB.NET with access 13 database sql but if fails saying "un-recognized key word when"

Help

sum(case when dc in (1,4,6) then TOTAL_CHRG else 0 end) as bonus_value

ms access does not have the CASE WHEN  construct, instead a IIF function, for example:
http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/advanced/iif.php
iif ( condition, value_if_true, value_if_false )
or switch function for more elaboration:
http://www.techonthenet.com/access/functions/advanced/switch.php
Switch ( expression1, value1, expression2, value2, ... expression_n, value_n )

hope this helps
