Dear Experts,

I have two tables with names  TA and TB. TA has columns a,b,c,d and TB has columns x,y,z,t. I'm going to insert columns x, y, z from TB into TA. However, the remaining column in TA, the column d, will be zero if value of the column t in TB is 'AD'  otherwise it will be one.  

In other words, something like this:

insert into TA (a,b,c,d) select x,y,z,(0 if t='AD' otherwise '1') from TB;

Could you help me?
