Hello Experts,

I have the following query select id, organization1, organization2 from project

And the corresponding data

Id; organization1;organization2
58968;; titi1.titi2.titi3.titi4.titi5

As you can see sometimes organization2 doesn’t have data the same for organization1

I need to perform a sql query that does the following:

Select case when Organization1 is not null take into account Organization 1 else take into Organization2 as OrganizationRevised. If both are not null take into account Organization 1

Select just level2.level3 of OrganizationRevised

Final result

Id Organization Revised

Thank you for your help.
