Hi all,

Firstly many apologies if this is in the wrong place. I'm basicly trying to create a scalar function that returns a nvarchar (15) variable.

The Function has two input variables namely [category] and [AreaCode] (both nvarchar(15)) with an output variable [Team Line]. I've constructed this without any problem via a case statement (see below), but as I need to use this statement repeatingly I thought a scalar function would be the answer!

I'm new to sql functions so any good advice would be much appreciated!


,case when

when [Category]='A' then 'Team A'
when [Category]='B' then 'Team B'
when [Category]='C' then 'Team C'
when [Category]='K' and [AreaCode] in ('Acct','Desp','Analysis') then 'Team D'
when [Category]='L' and [AreaCode] not in ('Lark') then 'Team E'

else 'Others'
end as [Team Line]

Kindest regards,

Please don't cross post. It just wastes people's time and fragments replies.
