Based on the SQL Code below, how can I construct this statement?

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[spLoadEquipmentCalibrationGrid]
	@equipmentType_ID		INT=NULL,
	@calibration_ID			INT=NULL
	DECLARE @strCalibration_IDs		VARCHAR(50)
	IF @calibration_ID = 4
		SET @strCalibration_IDs = '(2,3,4)'
		SET @strCalibration_IDs = '(' + @calibration_ID + ')'
	IF @equipmentType_ID = 0
		SELECT	equipment_ID AS 'Equipment ID'
		  FROM  HEADER_Equipment 
		 WHERE	A.equipmentType_ID > 0 AND calibration_ID IN @calibration_ID
	  ORDER BY	B.equipmentType

But better is to create a table variable and insert the values in that table depending on your test and select the wanted values in your select by using that table-variable
Declare @mytab table (val int);
if ... 
  insert into @mytab (val) 
  values (4)

from .... where ... in (select val from @mytab);

Thanks jogos...that's what I was looking for. My SQL programming skills aren't the best and I wasn't sure what the syntax should be!
