sql_language thread: Select Case in SQL

Message #1 by ronp@c... on Thu, 7 Dec 2000 22:55:57 -0000
I was unaware that Access Sql supported Case
unlike Transact-SQL

When you think about it you would create a sql text
string and build this up with CASE options etc.

then open recordset with the concatenated text string.

This of course is what Transact-SQL is doing anyway
parsing the text and resolving into a recordset.

You can of course use cascading IIF statements in
Access SQL and this can often achieve desired results
