IF Statement Question in Pervasive

IF Statement Question in Pervasive

IF Statement Question in Pervasive

(OP)
Hello!

I am trying to fix this IF statement error. All i want is the value of column 'Column2' to display if column 'Column1' = y.

IF (Column1 = 'Y', Column2 , '0') "ColumnTEST",

The data type for column2 is numericsts and the data type for Column1 is char.
 
This is the error message i get:
ODBC Error: SQLSTATE = S1000, Native error code = 0
Incompatible types in expression.

What am i doing wrong here? the SQL statement seems fine, to me. Any thoughts and comments are highly appreciated. Thanks in Advance!

RE: IF Statement Question in Pervasive

You'll probably need to Cast (or convert depending on the version of PSQL) the Column2.  So something like:
IF (Column1='Y',Convert(Column2,SQL_CHAR), '0') "ColumnTEST",
