I have something wrong in below Case Statement.

Msg 1035, Level 15, State 10, Procedure usp_rmcore_invoicesfrt, Line 232
Incorrect syntax near 'Cast', expected 'AS'.

CASE
                   WHEN @AgingBase = 'I' Then Datediff("d", recl.invdate, Cast(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), Getdate(), 111)))    
                   WHEN @AgingBase = 'D' Then Datediff("d", recl.duedate, Cast(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), Getdate(), 111)))                    
                   ELSE 0
                   END                           AS AgeDays,

simple syntax error:

CAST(VALUE AS DataType)


try:
CASE

                   WHEN @AgingBase = 'D' Then Datediff("d", recl.duedate, Cast(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), Getdate(), 111) AS VARCHAR) )                   
                   ELSE 0
                   END                           AS AgeDays,
