Can someone help me convert the following Excel IF statement to either a SQL case statement or MS-Query SQL statement:

CurMonth

=IF(MONTH(getdate())=1,
IF(MO=12,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate())-1,1,0),0),
IF(MO=MONTH(getdate())-1,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate()),1,0)))

CurYear

=IF(MONTH(getdate())=1,
IF(MO<=12,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate())-1,1,0),0),
IF(MO<=MONTH(getdate())-1,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate()),1,0)))

PriorYear

=IF(MONTH(getdate())=1,
IF(MO<=12,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate())-2,1,0),0),
IF(MO<=MONTH(getdate())-1,
IF(YR=YEAR(getdate())-1,1,0)))

Thanks

Hi Glen, the statements in your question look like a mixture of Excel and TSQL. Can you explain a bit more about what you'd like to achieve and post a few rows of sample data.

Here is my solution to convertin the IF statement to a SQL case statement:

``````case when MONTH(getdate())=1 then
case when MO=12 then
case when  YR = YEAR(GETDATE())-1 then 1 else 0 end
else
case when  MO = month(GETDATE()-1) and YR = YEAR(GETDATE()) then 1
else 0 end end end as CMO,

Case when Month(getdate())=1 then
case when MO <=12 then
case when YR = year(getdate())-1 then 1 else 0 end
else
case when MO <=month(getdate()-1)  and YR=Year(getdate()) then 1
else 0 end end end as CYR,

Case when Month(getdate())=1 then
case when MO <=12 then
case when YR = year(getdate())-2 then 1 else 0 end
else
case when MO <=month(getdate()-1)  and YR=Year(getdate()-1) then 1
else 0 end end end as PYR
``````

Thanks
