creating a derived field using case

(OP)
HELP!  - SQL -
Running Reportsmith 3.1 (linking to ADP Enterprise) to create a Compliance report for Workers Comp Reporting.  I am trying to translate data to do the following
When '0' then ' ' (nothing) - or it can be '0'
when greater than '0' then '1'
I cant get it to accept any comparison expressions.  Please assist if you can.

RE: creating a derived field using case

(OP)
CASE WHEN (INJURY.RESTRICTD_WORKDAYS) > 0 THEN '1' ELSE ' ' END

Through trial and error I was able to work through it with the above.

RE: creating a derived field using case

I've found that having the word "WHEN" before the name of the field being compared seems to work.

Some case statements allow you to identify the field name then enter "when "25" then", but not the comparison fields.

RE: creating a derived field using case

You could also use DECODE

DECODE(field name,0,0,1)

This will evalulate like this:

If field name = 0 Then
   0
Else
   1
End If
