SQL Query/View - Change record from numeric to specific text value??

I have a SQL view that I am modifying and attempting to add a new column 1099 Type. The data for this column is actually a 1 or 4. I need change those values to be specific text. IE when someone runs the view and sees 1099 Type, they should see Miscellaneous instead of a 4. I have am a beginner in sql and need some assistance!
Thanks!

You can add the new column like below. We need to use the CASE statement.

,
CASE WHEN [1099 Type] = 1 THEN 'IE' ELSE 'Miscellaneous' END [1099 Type]

Please try this --

SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT VENDORID AS [Vendor ID], VENDNAME AS [Vendor Name], ADDRESS1 AS [Address 1], ADDRESS2 AS [Address 2], CITY, STATE, ZIPCODE AS [Zip Code], PHNUMBR1 AS [Phone Number 1], VADDCDPR AS [Address ID],

Ok, that works good with one exception...I have 2 columns that say 1099 Type and one of the columns now shows the text but the other is showing numeric values. I am trying to figure out where to eliminate the bad column in the query?
