Help please...trouble with a CASE statement for SQL

Help please...trouble with a CASE statement for SQL

Help please...trouble with a CASE statement for SQL

(OP)
For some reason this derived field is not coming up ok when testing it.  What am I missing?  I'm trying to get a ranged grouping going here.

CASE (FLOOR(DATEDIFF (DD, PS_EMPLOYMENT.CMPNY_SENIORITY_DT, "PS_EMPLOYMENT"."TERMINATION_DT")) / 365.25)
WHEN < 1 THEN 'Less then 1 year'
WHEN > 1 < 2 THEN '1 to 2 years'
WHEN > 2 THEN 'More then 2 years'
END

RE: Help please...trouble with a CASE statement for SQL

Your formula isn't written correctly.  I think the placement of the derived formula you're using in this formula is wrong, and you haven't included an ELSE option.

Try this:
CASE
WHEN (insert your "floor" derived formula here) <1 THEN 'less than 1 year'
WHEN (insert your "floor" derived formula here) >2
THEN 'more than 2 years'
ELSE '1 to 2 years'
END

Thanks for the reply.  I finally did this following formula and it worked:

CASE
WHEN (FLOOR(DATEDIFF (DD, PS_EMPLOYMENT.CMPNY_SENIORITY_DT, "PS_EMPLOYMENT"."TERMINATION_DT")) / 365.25) < 1.00 THEN '< 1 year'
WHEN (FLOOR(DATEDIFF (DD, PS_EMPLOYMENT.CMPNY_SENIORITY_DT, "PS_EMPLOYMENT"."TERMINATION_DT")) / 365.25) BETWEEN 1 AND 2 THEN '> 1 < 2 years'
WHEN (FLOOR(DATEDIFF (DD, PS_EMPLOYMENT.CMPNY_SENIORITY_DT, "PS_EMPLOYMENT"."TERMINATION_DT")) / 365.25) > 2 THEN '> 2 years'
END


Thanks again!
