I would like to name my case statement values so I can display it as a column to see what's happening. Here is my code:

SELECT NavMenu.*  
 from NavMenu 
 left outer join navmenu as nm on navmenu.parentnavmenuid = nm.navmenuid 
 NavMenu.NavMenuGroupCode IN (2609) 
 NavMenu.NavMenuName  LIKE '%test%'  

 order by navmenu.navmenugroupcode desc,  
 case when navmenu.isparentnavmenu = 1 then navmenu.listorder 
 Else nm.listorder 
 case when navmenu.isparentnavmenu = 1 then 0 
 else 1 

I have another query that uses:
End as 'GlobalOrder'

But when I try something like that with this, it doesn't work.
