Yes.  What's the question?

There's an articled called SQL Server CASE Solutions that is an image and code-rich tutorial of the SQL Server CASE statement.  Scroll down to 'CASE can also be used with aggregates' for aggregate value examples.

Just curious, can transnum = 'sent' without transid being 'send'?
