I am using the Oracle BI Administration Tool  to create a business (BMM) model.  I want to create a logical column that calculates the number of enrolment records that meet a set of criteria. I tried the formula below, but I'm getting a syntax error.

sum(case "Enrolment - College"."F College Enrolment"."Enrolment ID"   when
( "Enrolment - College"."F College Enrolment"."Area Flag"  in ('O')
and
 "Enrolment - College"."D Registration Status"."Registration Status Code"   in ('10','41')
and
"Enrolment - College"."F College Enrolment"."Semester" in ('NOV')
)
then 1 else 0 end)

Never used OBIEE but that case statement isn't correct syntax for regular Oracle.

The two syntaxes are:
1:  case some_object
         when some_value then some_value
         when some_other_value then some_other_value
      end

2: case when some_object=some_value then some_value
              when some_other_object=some_other_value then some_other_value
    end


It appears you are trying to mix them.
