How to write case statement

How to write case statement

How to write case statement

I'm trying to write a case statement in teradata.  So far I have:



Case StartMinute
When Config.tblManagementUnit.TimeZone 'US/Central' then (StartMinute+60)
When Config.tblManagementUnit.TimeZone "US/Pacific" then (StartMinute+180)
When Config.tblManagementUnit.TimeZone "US/Mountain" then (StartMinute+120)
Else (StartMinute +0)


Group by...
I get error 102 Incorrect syntax near 'Us/Central'.  I would like to add the appropriate number of minutes to a start time to convert them all to Eastern Standard time.  StartMinute is a column in one of the 4 tables I'm pulling from.   If I omit the case statement piece, the query works fine.  I've  tried using " instead of '.   I've tried using () instead of "", I've tried enclosing the "Startminute +" piece in single quotes, double quotes but it doesn't seem to help.

PS  I'm fresh off the boat new to SQL/Teradata.


RE: How to write case statement

I think you should use the '=' operator. like below

When Config.tblManagementUnit.TimeZone = "US/Central" then (StartMinute+60)
