Or...

select substr(oncitm,5,10) cstitm, onitem,okpric price,
case when okpgrp = '40004' then '1'
when okpgrp = '40001' then '2' end case as New_Field
from
vcoitem join vinitem
Order By 4

but you want to use the name you just created, you'll have to use jim's
method.

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

TIA,
