Given the following SQL Statement -
select substr(oncitm,5,10) cstitm, onitem,okpric price, case when okpgrp = '40004' then '1' when okpgrp = '40001' then '2' end case from vcoitem join vinitem
How can I specify the result of the CASE clause in the order by clause.
Also, how can I assign a name to the result of the CASE clause

As far as I know, you have to copy the whole case statement into the ORDER BY clause, like so

select substr(oncitm,5,10) cstitm, onitem,okpric price,
case when okpgrp = '40004' then '1'
when okpgrp = '40001' then '2' end case
from
vcoitem join vinitem
order by case when okpgrp = '40004' then '1'
when okpgrp = '40001' then '2' end case
