I need to create a query in SQL for an Excel statement which goes like ..

Check status , If its Yes then 'WithinStatus'
If it is not yes then check Hours and if Hours is < Benchmark then 'OutsideStatus' otherwise InsideStatus



I started with Case statement but then I am confused...

Case when Status = 'Yes' then 'WithinStatus'
Else
Case when Hours< Benchmark Then 'OutsideStatus'
Else
'WithinStatus'
End as StatusType.

Don't know how to go with the other Else....

You don't need several CASE, one is enough.
Case when Status = 'Yes' then 'WithinStatus'
when Hours< Benchmark Then 'OutsideStatus'
Else 'WithinStatus'
End as StatusType.

If a condition evaluates to true, it won't evaluate the following possibilities.

Are you seriously taking the advice and code from someone from the internet without testing it? Do you at least understand it? Or can it easily kill your server?

Luis is absolutely correct here. He made the same oversight that you did originally though. Your original post (although over complicated) would work. The last condition in both of our code should be 'InsideStatus'

Case when Status = 'Yes' then 'WithinStatus'
when Hours< Benchmark Then 'OutsideStatus'
Else 'InsideStatus'
End as StatusType
