Nice one. Would have had it wrong if I hadn't expected a "catch".

Lucky enough to find the anomaly instead of getting into the trap of "BETWEEN (high) AND (low)" which should be otherwise :-)

This was simpy amazing. Simple question yet interesting. It looked plain and simple at first but was just curious to find what was fishy and then i concentrated on the very part.

Nice tricky question. :-)

Really Good one, Hugo, thank you for posting (so basic and so much of valuable point)

(Not sure and can't think of why one would use as "BETWEEN -1 AND -10" with "start" as the higher value in any practical case. When I saw -1 as the start value.. I thought that might be the catch here and .... :-) )


SELECT KeyCol, ValueCol, CASE
WHEN ValueCol < -10 THEN 'Very negative'
WHEN ValueCol BETWEEN -10 AND -1 THEN 'Bit negative'
WHEN ValueCol = 0 THEN 'Zero'
WHEN ValueCol BETWEEN 1 AND 10 THEN 'Bit positive'
ELSE 'Very positive'
END AS Category
FROM
(
SELECT 1 [KeyCol], 0 [ValueCol]
UNION ALL
SELECT 2, 4
UNION ALL
SELECT 3, -15
UNION ALL
SELECT 4, 14
UNION ALL
SELECT 5, -2
) A
ORDER BY 2

Liked that one, looked innocuous at first then had a think about it and had a facepalm moment as I was writing out what I thought the results would be and got on the BETWEEN statement! Great question, glad I took some time over it. :-D
