    Unanswered: case statement column's used in order by , show error 'Invalid Column in the context'

    Hi ,
    I have query with order by clause having

    customised column using case statement , when

    this column is used on order by clause , its

    showing error 'Invalid Column in the context' .


    I try to use the entire case statement in the

    order by clause it's working fine, the problem i

    have using this solutions is performance

    degrade.Even this customised columns have

    reference columns as well.
    Please anyone could

    suggest a solution how to proceed with this

    1. reading the entry : before posting ....
    2. specify db2level / platform
    3. publish the query / return code / sqlcode....
    4. ddl needed to look at issues

    The error is clearly on line 17 of your code.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.
