Query not working

Query not working

Query not working

(OP)
I'm somewhat of a novice with SQL 2000, so please bear with me.

I have created a large query in SQL Query Designer.  Unfortunately I cannot use CASE statements in this.  Essentially I need to all values in column TX_PA_HOMESTEAD.HOMESTEAD_12, that are less than 51 to become 50, and all other values to stay what they are.  The statement below is what I tried and it did not work.  

WHEN TX_PA_HOMESTEAD.HOMESTEAD_12<51 THEN 50 ELSE TX_PA_HOMESTEAD.HOMESTEAD_12

Does anyone have ideas as to what I can put in query designer to get the results I need?

Thanks!

RE: Query not working

If you have questions related to Microsoft SQL Server, then you should post your question here: forum183: Microsoft SQL Server: Programming

Unfortunately, the SQL Query Designer will sometimes place arbitrary restrictions on your query.  As such, I encourage you to use Query Analyzer instead.

In Enterprise Manager, click Tools > SQL Query Analyzer.  Make sure the correct database is selected, then write (or copy/paste) or query.  Your query should look something like...

CODE

Select col1,
       col2,
       Case WHEN TX_PA_HOMESTEAD.HOMESTEAD_12<51
            THEN 50
            ELSE TX_PA_HOMESTEAD.HOMESTEAD_12
            END As HOMESTEAD_12_Modified
From   Table
etc...
