Nested CASE statement in T-sQL

I have a crystal report with A financial detail table that has 13 accounting period columns in it and based on the accounting period sent by a parameter  between 1 to 13  it should display the corresponding amount for the corresponding account for that specific accounting period. then the amount is further manipulated to show negative or positive values.

DECLARE @FY AS INT ,@COMPANY as varchar(100),@ACCTPERIOD AS VARCHAR(26)

SELECT  
COMPANY, ACCOUNT,

CASE
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='1'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_01
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='2'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_02
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='3'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_03
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='4'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_04
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='5'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_05
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='6'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_06
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='7'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_07
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='8'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_08
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='9'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_09
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='10' THEN DB_AMOUNT_10
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='11' THEN DB_AMOUNT_11
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='12' THEN DB_AMOUNT_12
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='13' THEN DB_AMOUNT_13

 ELSE ''
 END AS DBAMOUNT,
 


CASE       
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='4') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 < 0) THEN  (ABS(DB_AMOUNT_01))
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='4') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 > 0) THEN  (-1*(DB_AMOUNT_01))
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='5') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 < 0) THEN  (ABS(DB_AMOUNT_01))
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='5') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 > 0) THEN  (-1*(DB_AMOUNT_01))
ELSE DB_AMOUNT_01
END AS DOLLARS,



FISCAL_YEAR,  0 AS PERIOD,'BUDGET' "TIME CLASS", DB_UNITS_01 AS UNITS
FROM PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL  

WHERE      (FISCAL_YEAR = @FY)
AND COMPANY='100'



Now i need to take the DBAMOUNT column and further manipulated it  for accounts starting with 4 and 5 as shown in second case statement,  but i would like to reference the  DBAMOUNT rather than the first DB_AMOUNT_01  i am currently reffering in the first case statement.

i know i can create a table valued function and put the first case statement init but i am having trouble retrieving the function in the stored procedure as it returns multiple values.


any ideas how can i  reference the column for first case statment into second case statment.

use a subquery:

select DBAMOUNT 
FROM 
(
.... your current query

You know that
CASE       
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='4') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 < 0) THEN  (ABS(DB_AMOUNT_01)) 
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='4') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 > 0) THEN  (-1*(DB_AMOUNT_01)) 
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='5') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 < 0) THEN  (ABS(DB_AMOUNT_01)) 
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1))='5') AND (DB_AMOUNT_01 > 0) THEN  (-1*(DB_AMOUNT_01)) 
ELSE DB_AMOUNT_01
END AS DOLLARS, 

Open in new window

is the same as
CASE       
WHEN ((SUBSTRING((CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10))),1,1)) in ('4','5') THEN  -DB_AMOUNT_01 
ELSE DB_AMOUNT_01
END AS DOLLARS, 

Open in new window

It appears that when the db_amount is negative, you use abs(db_amount) to make it positive and when it's positive you multiply by -1 to make it negative whether account = '4' or '5'. Why not just multiply by -1 for every case? Then you can make your first case statement -
CASE
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='1'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_01*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='2'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_02*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='3'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_03*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='4'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_04*(-1)
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='5'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_05*(-1)
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='6'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_06*(-1)
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='7'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_07*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='8'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_08*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='9'  THEN DB_AMOUNT_09*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='10' THEN DB_AMOUNT_10*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='11' THEN DB_AMOUNT_11*(-1)
      WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='12' THEN DB_AMOUNT_12*(-1)
    WHEN @ACCTPERIOD='13' THEN DB_AMOUNT_13*(-1)
 ELSE ''
 END AS DBDOLLARAMOUNT,
...
WHERE SUBSTRING(CAST (PROD.dbo.FBDETAIL.ACCOUNT AS VARCHAR(10)),1,1) IN ('4','5')
