How to write a case statement in a data source query using the Microsoft ODBC Text driver.


The syntax for a case statement using the Microsoft ODBC Text driver is different than it would be in SQL. This is an example of a case statement:

iif(F15=’DropShip’,’1661′,’2684′) as ACCT

This is an if statement that says if column F15= DropShip then the value returned is 1661, else it is 2684 (Note there are two “i” characters at the beginning of the if statement). ┬áThe column name is returned is aliased as ACCT
