SQL Where statement and conditional selecting

I have two fields in a table - yearcon and yearren.    

select yearren, yearcon from property

Open in new window


If yearren is populated I want to look at that field in the where statement and if not, look at the yearcon field.

where if(yearren > 0, yearren, yearcon) > 2000

Open in new window


Can someone help me?   I have the flu and my brain doesn't work!

Avoid using ISNULL in a WHERE or JOIN because it makes the columns "nonsargable".  In this case, the OR may still cause performance issues, but the rule about not using ISNULL is still correct.

WHERE ((yearren > 0 AND yearren > 2000) OR ((yearren IS NULL OR yearren = 0) AND yearcon > 2000))
