SQL / BI Publisher


I am trying to create a SQL statement to use in word / BI Publisher to display text if the criteria is met, the code I have is not working,

If rate code = ABC1 or RAB2 or ABC3 or BCD1, display TEXT.

<?If: RATE_CODE='ABC1' or contains
(RATE_CODE,'RAB2')='true' or

Is the text is another column ?

We can do something like below:
create table sample_test
(RATE_CODE varchar2(10),
text varchar2(10));

insert into sample_test values('ABC1', 'text1');
insert into sample_test values('RAB2', 'text2');
insert into sample_test values('ABC3', 'text3');
insert into sample_test values('BCD1', 'textbcd1');
insert into sample_test values('Hello', 'Hello');

select (case when RATE_CODE = 'ABC1' then text
 when RATE_CODE = 'RAB2' then text
 when RATE_CODE = 'ABC3' then text
 when RATE_CODE = 'BCD1' then text
 else'NA'end ) My_val
  from sample_test;

The code

<?If: RATE_CODE='ABC1' or contains
(RATE_CODE,'RAB2')='true' or

is very close but not working, the text is inserted using conditional formatting in word
